I have been a Grace Pastor and Bible Teacher for almost 40 years. During that time, I was also blessed to be involved in Youth ministry through our church's Summer Bible Camp program. Something I will always be grateful for was the opportunity to be part of a Cowboy Camp Ministry for 11 years. God blessed me greatly to be able to combine my two passions in life... Bible teaching and horses! I currently lead a Home Bible Study group near Watertown, Wisconsin, a weekly ZOOM Bible study, and speak at several conferences and retreats throughout the year. I also am a board member of Grace Beyond Borders International mission organization.

Look at What We Have!

Text: Romans 5:1-5 Therefore… we are about to encounter some divine information concerning the results of what God has previously revealed to us regarding justification by faith (See Romans 3:21-26).  Having established that justification cannot be obtained by one’s character, lineage, by the Law, ordinances, or religious ritual, but only by placing our faith in ...

Sufficient Grace

“And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said ...

To Judge or Not To Judge

I am often amused and, at times, irked when I hear someone voice an opinion to rationalize any particular behavior that may have found acceptance in the popular culture, but is knowingly contrary to the righteous standards set forth in the Word of God.  Amused and irked, not because they don’t have a right to ...
