I was born and raised in Hollywood, Florida. I married my best friend, Phyllis, in July, 1987. We have 3 amazing children (Bethany Lukens, Nathan, and Jared). We also have 5 grandchildren who live in MA (Quilan, Aisling, Lochlan, Teagan, Maclan).
Salvation/Surrender: I accepted the Lord as my Savior at the age of 5 and was baptized at my home church shortly thereafter. Several years later, during a missions conference while I was in 9th grade, I surrendered to ministry.
Education: Attended Baptist Bible College East, in Boston to study Missions, but switched my major to Music. Met a wonderful girl (Phyllis) while at BBCE, studying Christian Education, transferred to Tennessee Temple University, Chattanooga, and completed my BS in Sacred Music.
