The Holy Spirit
I retired from the Army in 1994 and lost my way in the world. I ended up in prison and it was truly the best thing that could have happened. There Christ rescued me from my depravity (John 3:19) and made me whole again. Since my release in 2006 I have worked in some form of ministry, either prison or construction/disaster relief and sometimes both.
My lovely wife Naida and I serve as Missionaries from Pioneer Valley Baptist Church, Chicopee, MA. We are currently headquartered in Jackson, MS. We were sent to the mission field in 2012 to help Rebuild Lakeshore, a ministry of Lakeshore Baptist Church in Lakeshore, MS complete its post Katrina building projects. We had been serving there part time for many years before being called into full time service. While there my wife worked the Mercy House distribution center and I worked as project manager/volunteer coordinator also serving as Sr. Volunteer Chaplain at the local Hancock county jail.
Since completing that project in late 2015 we relocated to Jackson MS to assist a church, in building a new sanctuary, there that had come to help in Lakeshore many times. But due to many circumstances the focus for the ministry has changed some and expanded over the past 36 months. For a full list of what we offer please see the Services Offered page on our Faith Builders Ministry site. Our twofold mission is to help churches in their construction needs and serve communities in disaster relief efforts. . This November (2017) I was honored to be accepted as a associated member of the Reformed Baptist Network (RbNet).
I continue to serve as Chaplain with Mission M25 on the Southern Route of Run For The Wall each May and as Chaplain/Medic on the new Sandbox Route as we ride our motorcycles across America bringing awareness of the thousands of Missing and POW American Service members still unaccounted for.
Between us my wife and I have two beautiful daughters 3 sons and 11 grandchildren and 2 great grandchild. I am also working on a BS in Integrated Studies (Theology Emphasis) from an Online University while writing my Th.M thesis from a non accredited University.
