As Chief Executive Officer and President of TCM, I serve in three interrelated areas. About one third of my time is invested in development, public relations, and fundraising. Another third is devoted to administration, teaching, writing, and research. The rest of my time is taken up by providing leadership, planning, and attention to personnel.
For TCM, I serve as Professor of Leadership and Spiritual Formation. My academic preparation included: B.A. Milligan College; M.Div., Emmanuel School of Religion; D.Min., Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; Ph.D., Indiana University.
I was born in Texas and raised in Dallas and Alice Springs, Australia. I'm also a voting member of the Cherokee Tribe. My great-grandfather was a young boy in the Trail of Tears. Suzanne and I were married December, 1975. She has served with me in churches in Virginia, Tenessee, and Indiana as well as serving in various capacities with TCM.
My work with TCM began in late 1989, and I have never been more passionate about what God is doing through the ministry than I am today!
