School Story:

After graduation I attended the University of Texas at Arlington until drafted into the U.S. Army. I was stationed in Nuremberg/F├╝rth Germany for two years. When I was honorably discharged we moved to Lewisville, Texas. I worked for Texas New Mexico Power as a electrical lineman for 12 years. While attending Calvary Baptist Church I made a mission trip to Old Mexico and later surrender to be full time ministry and later to serve as a missionary. Maggie and I attended Arlington Baptist College. In 1979 we moved to Mexico and attended a Missiology and language school in Monterrey. I graduated with my classmates in Mexico but received my Bachelor of Arts from Baptist Christian College. We served as missionaries in Monterrey Nuevo Leon, Jimenez Chihuahua, and Cd. Obregon Sonora Mexico for 11 years.

In order to give our Seminary validity I studied with the Patriot Baptist Seminary, Seminario Bautista del Valle, Landmark Baptist Theological Seminary, and Patriot University. We left the mission field and I served as the pastor at Green Acres Baptist Church in Stephenville Texas. In 1996 I resigned as pastor and we went back into mission work. In December of 1996 I became the Director of Landmark Mission Projects and Dean of Landmark Baptist Theological Seminary. In June of 2008 I became the Pastor of Landmark Baptist Church and President of the Landmark Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth. I am still serving as the Director of Landmark Mission Projects.
