From my boyhood days in Michigan, I always had a love and appreciation for firearms. My first was a Winchester 22 for my 11th birthday. For the past several years, I have finally taken the time and returned to hunting, and firearms in general. I finally got my CCW permit in the fall of 2007.
I currently own a J.C. Higgins 9-shot 22 revolver, and a Glock 17 9mm. My recent financial challenges necessi-tated the selling of my Remington 7400 in .270, and my Smith & Wesson M&P in 40 S&W.
My greatest passion is the Lord Jesus Christ, His Word, His people, His love for the Lost, and ministering in the midst of that mix. After 6 years in youth minisitry, and 23 in preaching ministry (21 in my first location), I am now in my 5th year working with small groups and pastoral care at First Christian Church in New Philadelphia, OH while seeking to be His hands and feet among the unsaved of our community. I have been happily married to Teresa for 34 years, and am dad to three great sons, two daughters-in-law, and two grand-daughters.
