Twenty years of experience as a Pastor preaching three times per week and speaking in various other functions.

Metropolis, Illinois.

Completed a $5 million building and relocation program. Lead the church to adopt a comprehensive missions and discipleship strategy. Supported a new church plant in DeKalb, IL and assisted in developing a mission’s strategy for the nation of Haiti. I also wrote a new believers/members class that we are using in the church, which is entitled “On Mission with God.” We also were able to lead the church to adopt a small-group discipleship program, which helped to double our attendance on Sunday nights. Mentored three young men who are now serving in vocational ministry. Since January 1st of this year we have baptized 18 new converts.

Helped the church to recover from a split that had occurred a year before I became Pastor. Lead the church to adopt a discipleship strategy for new believers and to sponsor a new church plant in Mechanicsville, VA. Worked closely with our church planter and state convention staff to develop church planting plan for Family Life Church in Mechanicsville, VA. During my time at Salem, God allowed me to mentor our Youth Pastor, David Simpson, who is now serving as the Senior Pastor of a church in the Richmond area.
