We were married in 1973 and have four children -- 2 sons and 2 daughters. We lived in Des Moines, Iowa, for the first 20 years of our marriage. For 5+ of those years we traveled with a gospel group known as the Joyful Inspiration. The last 4 years were spent as Music Minister/Asst. Pastor of Lighthouse of Faith, Des Moines, Ia.
Paul was Asst. Pastor/Music Minister at Church On The Word, Warner, OK. from 2000 to 2012.
In 2009, he began ministering in nursing care facilities and eventually traveled to 20-and later up to 38-facilities per month. He was known as the Ol' Circuit Ridin' Preacher. He continues that ministry in a full-time capacity today.
(Since 2020 and Covid-19 there have been some progressive changes to the ministry.)
He is still a traveling minister. That ol' Circuit Ridin' Preacher. However the world has changed. He is now traveling through the internet 'live' Tuesdays and Thursdays on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. Now he travels the world.
(Several activities directors asked for live streaming to the nursing homes as a way to get in when it was impossible to minister in person. This has resulted in a brand new ministry outlet. We are now ministering worldwide through the internet.)
We have been in the ministry since 1975, Preaching, Teaching, and Singing the Life of God. Our home church is Rhema Bible Church, Broken Arrow, OK.
