I am a 55-year-old pastor living in New York. The purpose of this blog is to put in writing the thoughts and observations I consider worth talking about. I am married with three children. I have a Bachelor of Music degree from Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, TX, a Master of Divinity degree from the Pentecostal Theological Seminary (formerly the Church of God School of Theology) in Cleveland, TN, and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA, and a year in the PhD program at Regent University, Virginia Beach, VA. I have been credentialed with the Church of God, Cleveland, TN since 1990. I and my family have lived in Smithtown, NY since October 2006.
