Which of the Core Values do you focus on and why are you passionate about it?

Champion Family! I have been in the ministry full time since 1985.  Throughout my ministry, I have worked with the family in some fashion.  Helping parents and kids find Christ has been a passion of mine since the beginning.  Parents are struggling and there is no place that will help them.  I feel that as we come alongside them, God can do some incredible things.

What do you love the most about your job?

I love hearing the stories of how God is moving and changing the lives of parents and families!

Favorite Bible verse?

My Favorite Bible verse is actually a chapter - Psalms 139

Outside of Work...

I've been married to Marion since May 23, 1987.  We have three kids that are grown and out of the house, and a new granddaughter.

What do you enjoy doing during your free time?

My hobbies are driving UBER, playing poker, and spending time with the family (especially being the best grandfather ever to our beautiful new granddaughter!).
