I was called to the ministry as a boy, and yet that river-journey flowed along through many detours, ox-bow bends, and side channels . . . the river lost at times in the canyons it tumbled through, yet always found, in time, again.
My wife Rosana and I were trained in the Family-Teaching Model, under the direction of Father Val Peters and his staff at Boys‛ Town in Nebraska. We were certified as Family-Teachers each of the five years we worked at Waxahachie Children‛s Services, Waxahachie, Texas (a ministry of the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A.).
I have held various ministry positions in a wide variety of Christian denominations and have been an ordained minister in the Conservative Congregational Christian Church since 1990.
In years past, I taught college English and Journalism, first at the University of Texas, Arlington; and then at Houghton College.
Today, my wife, daughter and I live in the small town of Wiggins, Colorado and minister at Wiggins Community Church.
