I grew up in west and north Texas, moving eight times before I started high school. That left me longing for a place to belong. I found such a place at Oklahoma State University, where I heard the gospel for the first time. I trusted Christ my junior year and everything changed. It was there that I also met my wife Lucina and we married in 1982.
We struggled in the early years of our marriage, which has given me a passion for helping young couples. I love teaching men what it means to lead in their relationships, whether that’s marriage, family or business. When John 10:10 is put into practice and people get a taste of really living the abundant life, it’s the greatest thrill in the world.
When not doing ministry, I am active in the oil and gas industry. We have two grown children, one living the dream in LA and the other in the oil and gas industry as well. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!
