Introduction

I am easy going, a "safe" person to be around. This is because I am seeking to be like Christ in all my ways, and believe that He will get me there eventually if I persevere in faith and trust in His power to save.
God radically transformed my life 30+ years ago and I have never been the same since, and have no regrets whatsoever.
My life is all about ministry as I am deeply passionate about God's Word and saving souls. Where I live is now determined by the call of God. Not my will but His determines where I am working.
I grew up on an Iowa farm in Southeastern Iowa, and still maintain the conservative, common sense values I learned there.
As a pastor, I hear sad, even heart-breaking stories from women who have been mistreated and abused, and my heart goes out to them, for God made woman to be protected and cherished by man, but this too often doesn't happen. When I hear these stories, how I wish I could change their sad story and help them feel loved, but I can only do this for one special person someday. I am here hoping for that chance to bring some precious soul true love as it was meant to be from the beginning. It remains to be seen if I will get that chance.
My ideal partner would be someone who knows what it means to be born again, who has been transformed by the renewing of their mind (Rom. 12:2) and can articulate this in a personal testimony of how God changed their life for the better. I am hoping for a ministry partner, who can augment my ministry with Spiritual Gifts uniquely her own.

Essays

What I'd like to do on a first date...

Go to a quiet place like a restaurant or a park (weather permitting, of course) and spend time getting to know each other.

My past relationships have taught me...

To be patient and not jump to conclusions
The value of a second opinion from that special someone who I can trust completely to have my best interest at heart
Honesty and keeping the lines of communication open, especially during times of stress and strain

To me, being an Adventist means...

Having the privilege of being a part of giving the three angels' messages to the world.
Being right with God through the atoning blood of Jesus
Having the assurance of eternal life
Knowing what life is all about, and its not about me

In five years, I see myself

Find a full time pastoral position.
Write a book if I can ever find the time
Write my own set of bible studies
Write my own set of evangelistic sermons

My favorite Bible passage is...

Philippians 1:6
This is my assurance that what I cannot do, God will do for me in my preparation for heavenly habitation. By the time Jesus returns, I WILL be ready by His power!

One final thing I'd like to mention...

Being a pastor, I am not at liberty to live just anywhere I want to. I have to be where God has placed me in accordance with His call. So keep in mind that being with me might involve moving when God calls for me to go where He leads.
