I grew up in Texico, NM and was very active in 4-H and FFA.  After graduating from NMSU with a degree in Animal Science, I was pursuing my dream of ranching.  However, God had other plans.  While workng on a ranch and serving in a small Methodist Church, I felt the call into ministry.  I attended Asbury Theological Seminary and received my Master of Divinity degree in 1993.  I've served three churches in the New Mexico and Northwest Texas Annual Conferences.  Philippians 3:7-12 is my favorite Scripture because "I want to know Christ more."

I spent most of my childhood in the great state of Texas! I began following Jesus after a young man invited me to his student ministry at a local church. That is where the Gospel came alive for me. It was during my time in the U.S. Army I felt God really calling me to ministry. After my time in the military we returned to Dallas and I attended Dallas Christian College where I earned a degree in Practical Ministry. I am currently working on a Masters in Apologetics. I have served in student and children’s ministry for over 10 years.

It is an honor to keep all of the church facilities vacuumed and clean, particularly the recently renovated (late 2008) main Sanctuary. Everyone from the church I meet are kind and wonderful individuals!
