Welcome to the blog:
I am passionate about mission and evangelism. Leadership and church life. Theology and philosophy. Faith and spirituality. Discipleship. Education. Beach and ocean. My wife and 3 daughters. And much, much more.

There’s space in each post for you to leave comments, and I sincerely hope you do.
