    I enjoy volunteer ministry in the church, serving as a lay leader at Maple Grove Church of God in Anderson, as a volunteer trainer for LOGOS Midweek Ministry, and as chairman of the board of directors for Silent Blessings Deaf Ministries. Check out my blog, 21st Century Discipling.

    My hobbies include gardening, Cleveland Indians baseball, and Star Trek (all versions, but my favorite is Deep Space Nine). I have published Christian education articles and curriculum, and a text book, Discipleship That Transforms: An Introduction to Christian Education from a Wesleyan Holiness Perspective.
