Hello and welcome to our online resources. What about me?
My wife, Kim, and I have three grown daughters, Rachel, Sarah, and Hannah. We also have a grandson, Calvin, whom we adore. I graduated from Florida State University and Asbury Theological Seminary. I was ordained in 1990 and have served churches in Central and North Florida.
Since first coming to serve Ponte Vedra UM Church in 2016, my passion has been to help shape our congregational culture to become like an extended family for one another. At the same time our leaders are focused on our mission: to make fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. This purpose energizes our primary activities - our reason for being who we are, and doing what we do.
My aim is for guests to sense the authentic presence of Christ Jesus among us in a setting where disciples of Jesus grow in love with Him and one another. Our church welcomes all who are curious about us and seeking to know Christ through the personal relationship that He offers. I am convince the essential spiritual practices nurture every follower of Jesus to become the person he or she is designed to be, by God's grace and transforming power. We invite you to check out our church's activities for all ages. Daily Bible reading, personal and family prayer, gathering regularly for worship, and getting involved in a small group Bible study -all are keys to this spiritual growth. And I love the challenge and blessing of seeing Jesus Christ use our imperfections as His Church to help all to connect their lives to Jesus, that He may transform the world!
