I am passionately pursuing the outpouring of God's Spirit in revival, signs, and wonders. I believe an encounter with God is what every human being is longing for and that revival is the only hope for America. In 1983, while a homeless alcoholic deeply immersed in the drug culture, I had a radical encounter with Jesus which altered the course of my life. Soon after my conversion I enrolled in Teen Challenge, a Christ-centered program for people with life-controlling problems. Upon completing Teen Challenge's discipleship program, I went to Bible school where he met my wife, Kathy. After Bible school I returned to Teen Challenge of the Midlands where I worked for 14 years, mentoring men and women with broken lives. In 2002, I became the Senior Pastor at Heartland. Kathy and I have six children plus one little boy who has gone on before us to his heavenly home.
