Missions Ministry



After 27 years of serving local churches in the ministry of Christian education, I began my new assignment as Minister of Missions and Evangelism at Kingsland Baptist Church in Katy, Texas in July 2005. Over the 27 years I served in Christian education, I have led Sunday Schools to embrace the Great Commission and minister beyond the boundaries of the church campus. I have led others in local ministry initiatives as well as numerous international initiatives to Mongolia, China, Bangladesh, India, Sudan, the United Arab Emirates, as well as Ukraine and Peru. I am grateful to God for the opportunity to devote the coming years of my life to serving Him in the areas of missions and evangelism.

Below are three articles about missions that I wrote for LifeWay Christian Resources publications.

Confessions of a Reluctant Prayer Walker
I received an invitation to lead a prayerwalk to India in 1998. I must confess that my initial response to the invitation was less than positive. Read more about how God changed my heart in India.

  In Search of the Reindeer People
I first learned about the
Reindeer People of far northern Mongolia from my friend Jerry Smith of Change the World / LifeQwest Ministries of Mongolia. This trip gave a whole to meaning to the word "remote."

  In Search of a Man of Peace
The seeds for my trip to 
Bangladesh were planted on a train somewhere between UlanBator, Mongolia and Beijing, China. Little did I realize how God would work to lead me to Bangladesh.  Reprinted from HomeLife, September 2002, with permission from LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention.
