Taking a look back
I retired May 31, 2013, after over 25 years in Christian ministry. The last 24 years I served on staff at Worship Center, a church in Lancaster, PA, USA. My wife, Fran and I have 5 adult children, 12 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren. I'm the eternal optimist with a deep down hope of encouraging people to catch their dreams. Reading great books and having interesting conversations with my wife brings me great joy. I'm one happy man! During my ministry I've had the awesome privilege of teaching in seminars, conferences and Bible schools in India, Russia, Myanmar, five nations in Africa, two European nations, Indonesia, Fiji, Mexico, Costa Rica and here in the USA. On most of these venues, my wife taught along with me on family, marriage and leadership issues. Everything we did was by God’s grace and not by our own efforts. We have a deep sense of gratitude to our Savior and to Worship Center for the opportunities afforded us.
