Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!
Does anyone else remember Gomer Pile? What a knucklehead! And too often we as Christians are just like him! We pray and we don’t believe. We ask and the Lord answers and we have our eyes shut and ears closed.
I should always be in awe of God. He is God after all. But surprised? Not anymore. I have walked with Him long enough to know that He is capable of anything we can ask or even imagine! Why then were the Christians ‘astonished’ when Peter knocked on their door after the Spirit of God released Him from his chains in jail? Because they prayed errantly! They truly were not praying believing!
Believe God TODAY! Trust Him!
Acts 12:16 But Peter kept on knocking, and when they opened the door and saw him, they were astonished.

I am a visionary architect who is passionate about seeing dreams realized and implemented so that together we can better our world physically and spiritually. I get excited about leadership development and seeing the church multiplied as people embrace their creative side and breathe life and hope into their world. There is nothing that motivates me more than serving the young, the lost, the poor and the elderly.
I have been serving the Lord full-time for over 35 years. I consider myself a ‘life coach.’ For many years I was on the playing pitch. My role today is to train and invest in the next wave of ‘players’ who are serious about winning. My team runs to ‘win’…to win the prize of knowing that we embraced the high calling of God. To serve him with all that we have and give him all the glory.
I have been privileged to serve God as a youth pastor, school administrator, church planter, lead pastor, mission director, business owner, crisis and catastrophe director and college professor. That God chooses to use me to direct our amazing team blows me away. I love my job!
Exactly right. Shazam!!
