I grew up in a loving Christian home. I had ambitions of becoming a doctor, but when the Lord called me to ministry at the end of my sophomore year of college, it was an easy choice. I began ministry in the church full time in Nacogdoches in 1976, and also continued my education part-time at SFA. It was at the college BSU that I met Sheryl Burk, the prettiest girl on campus. We married in 1979 and had three amazing sons: Kevin, Allen, And Timothy. Over these past 40+ years, we have served numerous churches together, and even taught at a Christian college for a short time. God has blessed us greatly, and have loved our life of vocational ministry.
