HSU provides a great environment for Christian higher education. For over a quarter of a century I have had the opportunity to meet thousands of individuals through the classes and other events in the context of this university. After several years of experiences in church ministry the Lord opened this door of ministry to teach and work with students in their goals, dreams, struggles, and achievements.

Since high school years he has served in Baptist churches, both as a volunteer and as a staff member, including about twelve years as a pastor in Texas and Oklahoma. Experiences during summers in college involved two summers as a Ranger at Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, NM, and one summer as a summer missionary in Washington and Idaho.
