Call to Preach
At the age of 18 after rededicating his life to the Lord, he was troubled for weeks concerning the call to preach. The conviction turned to compulsion which led to surrender and increased assurance that the Lord called him to preach.
In December of 1976 he married Janie Ann. Janie is a born again believer who has been a faithful laborer by Pastor's side. He and Janie have five children and ten grandchildren.
