I was born without arms and spent the majority of my life being told that I was a hopeless mistake and woefully insufficient to lead a full life.  Yet, at the age of 15, God used a preacher to tell me of God’s love for me and that I was “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139) and I accepted Christ as my Lord.  One year later I submitted my life to a call to ministry and I have been preaching ever since.

Today, I am a married man and father.  I have been married to my best friend Heather for 10 years and we have a son and a daughter.  I am currently serving as the Student Pastor at Lake Norman Baptist Church in Huntersville, NC.

    The message about the prosperity gospel touched me. You can feel abandoned by God when circumstances happen to you. Today, after many years…I know what I must do. Press on. May God truly bless your ministry. The ministry of the words that flow from your mouth and the actions that flow through your hands. God, I pray a blessing upon this family now in your name. One that reaches the nations for your glory. Honest, open love that flows down through your people through this family towards others. Bless them for being a blessing to others and allowing themselves to be used by you. Amen.
