While my personal faith tradition in within the Southern Baptist Convention, I trace my theological-spiritual roots to the New Testament via the Radical Reformers of the 16th century. My undergraduate degree from Thomas Edison State University is in religion and philosophy. I further received a Master of Divinity from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary; a Doctor of Ministry from Trinity Theological Seminary; a Doctor of Philosophy in Church History & Polity from the University of Pretoria; and studied in the Master of Arts in Bioethics at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Though most of my ministry has been in serving the local church as pastor, I have also served as a City-Wide Evangelistic Crusade Director, small Christian book publisher, editor and author. Presently, I serve a Christian university affiliated with the Baptists of Georgia as director of the university press and associate professor in the university's school of theology.
