Golf used to be my passion. But after planting a church and attempting to raise five children, my passion is now breathing, spending time with my wife and loving Jesus. One of my real passions is helping people discover their destiny in the Lord. We were all created for fellowship with God and have a destiny that is discovered only in Jesus.
I love worship and the pleasure that is found in His presence. I love reading books (of all kinds) and running (have I told you about the time I ran two marathons in one week on two different continents....). I love my family and I love the family that is known as Fullness.
I am BLESSED and AMAZED!
I am so blessed to have my husband, Bart--the most amazing man I know.
I am blessed to have my 5 amazing kids!
I am blessed to be the Children's Pastor at this amazing church!
I am blessed by the love of my amazing friends.
I am amazed at how God works on my behalf!
'Your love is amazing, steady and unchanging;
Your love is a mystery, firm beneath my feet.'
I am a Hoover native and have been a member at Fullness for 4 years. During the week you'll find me buzzing around here at the church, from the front office to the AV room and everywhere in between. On some days of the week you might also find me teaching art classes or painting and taking photos. I work hard, play hard and can nap hard. I also always have a chocolate stash somewhere near by.
My ultimate passion is to live for Christ and to be a light for others. Ministry isn't a job, it's a lifestyle and I hope to live it to its fullest.
I walked through the doors of Fullness Sunday September 7, 2003 and never looked back! I was present to witness the miracle that nine months of prayer fulfilled. Through the tithes of our members, Fullness became completely debt fee the end of that September.
I am married to Leonard, who is a NY transplant, and an active member at Prince of Peace Catholic Church. After being transferred to 7 different states, we settled in Birmingham in 1998. Our daughter and son-in-law reside in Southbury, CT.
I am enormously blessed to be part of this special body and serve our leaders and members in maintaining this special place. We are very grateful for our cherished members who constantly volunteer to support our efforts to preserve our buildings and property.
My passion and heart are with our youth - - they are our future. In Matthew 11, Jesus spoke: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Oh, how I pray God will use us to convey his words to their young spirits so they understand how wonderful and worthwhile a relationship with Him is.
My heart is for day and night prayer. I have come to understand that the reason I breathe is to behold the beauty of Jesus Christ and to declare His worth… One of my personal life goals is to be able to call myself a ‘singing theologian’ fully equipped to pastor a generation to know the Lord.
I believe that God is just looking for a group of people that will agree with Him. I say, "Here I am.”
Malachi 1:11, “‘For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same My name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto My name, and a pure offering: for My name shall be great among the heathen.’ saith the Lord of hosts.” (KJV)
I'm just an old retired guy that doesn't mind doing administrative work and taking care of the sound and video area. I am somewhat familiar with Fullness, since it was started in my house in early 1993, and I have handled the finances and technical side since then. While some people have a "lake home", my second home is the balcony of the sanctuary -- good thing I am somewhat of an introvert!
I’m in awe and excited! I’m in awe because of the God I serve and because of what God did through the gospel to save me and to continue to work in me! I’m in awe because I’m married to an amazing, godly, beautiful woman who is also my best friend! I’m in awe because I get to serve in such an amazing church as Fullness and work with the students here!
I’m excited because the same God who is bigger than I can imagine also dwells within me by His Holy Spirit! I’m excited to get to be a part of what He is doing in the youth ministry at Fullness! I’m excited because God is faithful to finish what He has started!
I love reading books (mostly theology but I try to branch out occasionally), spending time with my wife and baby girl, and getting to do life with the students and families of Fullness.
