Personal Statement

I grew up in a Christian family and came to trust the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior at fourteen years
of age. I was baptized a year later and came into the fellowship of the local church where I continued to
learn and grow in grace and the knowledge of the Lord.

The authority of the Lord Jesus Christ in my life as a disciple of Christ and the revelation of the mind of
God in scripture guide and influence my thinking about life and service.

It continues to be a humble privilege to serve the Lord Christ in all areas of life including my marriage,
family, church life and my life work in providing help to hurting people, assisting them toward purposeful
change and growth within and restoration in their relationships. It is a Christian worldview that informs
my understanding of people and guides my work with them.
