I am a 45+ year old who has been involved in ministry for over 25 years. Writing has been part of my life all along, but now I'm ready to take it to a new level.
I am happily married for 27 years and have twin sons (24 years old). My wife and I have enjoyed the "empty nest" for the past several years and are enjoying a new phase of ministry.
For close to twenty years, my wife and I ran a part time traveling puppet ministry while I worked a full time job. During that time, God called me into full time children's ministry. I spent 5-6 years in ministry with Child Evangelism Fellowship here in New York. The last 10+ years I've continued to volunteer time and my writing skills to CEF.
I went from CEF to a full time children's pastor position at a church in New York.
God moved us on from that church three years ago, but we didn't have clear direction on what he wanted us to do. As we waited on Him, he opened the door to another ministry opportunity as a children's pastor.
Currently I am serving as part-time children's pastor at our current church and am enjoying the privilege of ministering to the children.
My spiritual gift is teaching and each week I get to exercise that gift by teaching the children at our church. I also have the privilege of writing the curriculum for our Junior Church program.
God is good. He is allowing me to use my gifts and abilities in serving Him each week. He is also opening doors to expand my writing.
My life verse is Isaiah 40:31
