I served as the Research Director for Vineyard Ministries International, Anaheim, CA, and was the Editor for two years of First Fruits the first Vineyard publication where I edited and administered a monthly magazine publication with a circulation of 25,000. I created the Vineyard Institute for Ministry, which was the first training center for young Vineyard pastors where I authored and taught five new Bible courses in a two-year span. I gave oversight to personnel and training in two other Vineyard schools and have made hundreds of public presentations.
I am the author of God's EPIC Adventure in pBook and eBook formats, which is a tour of the Story of God. Take a look at my amazon.com author's page. Previously, I wrote a quarterly Bulletin Insert publication called WordWise for local churches interested in providing their folks with a weekly Bible study. These bulletin inserts are now being converted to books and eBooks and pBooks. The first book that has been published is googling God's Will: Why Keep Searching for It When It's Not Lost? as a pBook and eBook. I have served as a Professor of OT and NT Studies for Vineyard Institute for Ministry (VIM). I addition, I have finished and published a third book entitled Gracelets: Being Conduits of the Extravagant Acts of God's Grace in pBook and eBook form.
I love spending time with my family, collecting baseball cards, watching TV and movies (especially reruns of Blue Bloods), eating banana sandwiches, traveling, reading mystery stories as pBooks and eBooks on my Kindle, and watching sports. I have a Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts and two Doctor of Ministry degrees. The first doctorate was in Biblical Studies while the second doctoral program was at George Fox University, Portland, OR, in Leadership in the Emerging Culture.
I am happily married to Donna Faith and we have two adult children and live in Washington State.
