What am I doing now?
I serve as the Deaf Ministry Catalyst with the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions in Montgomery, Alabama. I also serve as an Evangelist / Sign Music Artist for the Deaf. I do not limit myself to Deaf people only, I can serve for Hearing people as well. I travel often to guest preach, teach workshops, lead summer camps, conferences, retreats, and also lead music concerts in ASL. if you have a need for a Deaf minister in upcoming events, please do not hesitate to ask me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have videophone access, email me and I will give you my videophone number.

Christian life facts:
I accepted Jesus Christ when I was 8 years old going to church with my aunt and cousin to Ninth & O Baptist Church (when it was on Taylor Blvd back then). I was baptized at 12 years old. After marrying in 1994, me and my wife hopped different churches because she is deaf and depended on sign language mostly. I was hard of hearing and depended on lip-reading mostly. After hopping churches, picking up sign language here and there, the Lord led us to Valley View Church where He helped me establish a deaf ministry in February 1999. All of my years of ministry at Valley View were a blessing as a volunteer leader. In 2006, the Lord answered a prayer for me and led me to Southeast Christian Church to serve as a minister to Deaf on their church staff. For five years, I led this ministry. As of now, I am currently serving at Highview Baptist Church – Valley Station campus as the Deaf Pastor. I also continue to travel for evangelism work as well.
I have been a Deaf minister since 1996. I submitted my life to serve Jesus in February of 2003 and have been preaching, teaching, interpreting music, and leading deaf to Jesus since then.
My wife is my biggest supporter and she helps me in my ministry in all areas as much as possible. Without her, I do not know where I would be. She is a leader and supporter for many of the women that we meet on our travels often.
