This is my Personal Testimony:
"From the end of the Earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I."
My Testimony: I have been a born-again Christian since July 23, 1991. I trusted Christ at Black Hills Baptist Camp in Four Corners, Wyoming. The week I trusted Christ, I also surrendered to believer’s baptism, yielded to full-time Christian service, and gave my friendships to the Lord.
When I trusted Christ, the Lord took away my desire to curse, and challenged me to rein in my thought life. I’ve been growing ever since, due to a continual study of the Scriptures, and have challenged myself to learn enough about dealing with people to minister to them most effectively.
My Church: I am a member of Calvary Baptist Church, an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church, and have studied ministry for several years, serving in that church.
My Education: I attended one year of school at Northland Baptist Bible College, now known as Northland Internation... in Dunbar, Wisconsin, and over three years at Harvest Baptist Bible College in Fort Dodge, Iowa, majoring in Biblical Studies. I have also taken correspondence courses through Bethany Bible College in Dothan, Alabama.
My Burden: My burden is to win souls through friendship evangelism, disciple teachable Christians, and serve where God wants me to serve. I also want to provide resources for Christians who are looking for answers in their Christian life.
My Mentors: Thanks goes out to just a few of the people who've influenced the development of my Christian life. To Doyle Ellis, who was the first Pastor to really invest in my life, and whose guidance formed my early understanding of Christianity. To Harold and Loretta Yost, for teaching me the benefits of a simple, unencumbered Christian life, and to their church, for teaching me how to develop my singing talents. To the late Jack Hyles, who, although I never met him personally, influenced another mentor of mine, Terry Regimbal, to begin the bus ministry at my home church, through which I one day gave my life to Christ. To Jerry Twogood, for being a good bus captain, Junior Church teacher, and for generally being a nice guy. He's the man who first challenged me to carry my Bible to school, and I've carried one with me almost every day since. To Pastor Ron Fowler, for being a terrific Camp Dean at Black Hills Baptist Camp. To Bro.'s Jerrill Campbell and Tom Sooter, and Pastor Marvin E. Smith III, who were also influenced by Jack Hyles, and whose education at Harvest Baptist Church and Bible College has IRREVOCABLY changed my life! To authors Henry Cloud, John Townsend, Gary Chapman and Bill Gothard, whose materials have instructed and educated me in the finer points of living for Christ. To the countless friends at my home church over the past two decades, whose encouragement, and emotional and spiritual support, have been used of God to sustain me for two decades. And finally, to my Dad, for being a good example of a hard worker, persistent man, and a person who doesn't quit when things get tough. His example has greatly shaped my view of life in general, and my personality specifically.
My Most Recent Ministry Opportunity: I am currently an Adult Sunday School instructor at my home church, teaching from June thru November. Topics covered have included The Fruits of the Spirit, the Emerging Church, and miscellaneous messages on the topic of Relationships, including a series entitled "Relationships 101," based upon Bill Gothard's booklet, How to Fulfill 7 Basic Needs, available from the Institute in Basic Life Principles.
My Goal: Currently, my goal is to show my circle of influence that the Christian life is real, relevant, and not something to be taken lightly. My family can no longer escape the challenges of Christianity – since I’ve trusted Christ, several other of my family members have gotten saved, and after years of waiting, I am finally able to minister to them. Here is a page containing resources, documents, and references for Christians looking for answers in their daily Christian life. I hope you are blessed by what you find!
