I am the Executive Pastor here at Refuge.Church. I have an extremely diverse background: I have been involved in ministry for over 25-years. I am a retired Air Force officer (23-years), and currently a Tennis Teaching Professional in Naples, FL.
I believe that we should strive to reach people in the context of their environment, instead of telling them to come to the church, we must go wherever they are located. For example, when we go fishing, we do not tell the fish to come to us, we go to where the fish are located. Also, I believe in reaching the world using every tool available, to include television, radio, the Internet, and printed materials (yes, some people still like to read printed materials).
I like to employ intelligent and simple teaching techniques that are practical and can be applied to our daily lives. I also believe that one of the keys towards the advancement of the Kingdom of God is to break down some of the barriers within Christianity.
My wife, Treneice and I relocated to SWFL after retiring from the Air Force. We have three sons and two crazy dogs (a standard poodle and a labradoodle).
