Retired Law Enforcement Officer. I was raised in my Grandfathers Disciples of Christ Church, and educated in Private Christian Schools starting in Kindergarten through Highschool. Prior to starting seminary I was recruited by a Police Department and pursued that career.For 20 years I carried the burden of my choice. After I retired I volunteered at our local Baptist Association as a fill in Speaker where I would go to churches in the organization and fill in for a Pastor due to vacation, illness or until church found new pastor. I was offended 2 different Churches but refused. I feel the call of the Lord to preach his word. I am now without burden in my call to the ministry.
