My personal story

A Pilgrim's Path

Hi! Thanks for learning a little more about me and my journey.

I am an ordained presbyter in the Church of the Nazarene, and in my ministry, I work with churches and individuals from all denominations. I also currently serve as Pastor of The Udall Methodist Church, an independent church in Udall, Kansas, and Grandview UMC in Winfield, KS and as Care Coordinator for the Cozine Memorial Group.


My faith journey began with a Catholic background in my youth; this heritage gave me an appreciation for the historic Christian faith. As a minister, I love all branches of Christianity. A good friend coined a new name for me - "Orthocatharene" - part Orthodox, part Catholic, and part Nazarene.  I take that as a high compliment.

I am the author of two books, "A Pilgrim's Path: 31 Days to Discovering Life IN Christ and "A PRESENCE IN THE DARK: Finding Hope in Death." You can read more about them here.

My work is always oriented toward bringing revival to churches and individuals, and I am committed to building kingdom-minded communities, which often leads me to minister in ecumenical settings. You can learn more about my ministry here.

My wife, Rhonda, and I have been married for 36 years and have two grown children and two dogs still at home. We have ministered in churches in San Antonio, Texas; Wichita, Kansas; Udall, Kansas; and Winfield, KS.
