As a Church Ministries representative, my goals are to reach out to pastors, churches, and individuals to encourage, edify, and educate them on God's unique plan for the nation of Israel.

The promises and commands given to me in the Holy Scriptures.

What is one bit of wisdom you have for those who want to share the love of the Messiah with others?

It takes prayer, passion, patience, and perseverance to be successful in this ministry.

What Scripture compels you the most to do what you do?

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek" (Romans 1:16).

Who is the most influential person in your spiritual life? What books have you read (other than the Bible) that have impacted your spiritual life most?

Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum and his book Israelology: The Missing Link In Systematic Theology. Dr. J. Dwight Pentecost and his book Things To Come: A Study In Biblical Eschatology. Dr. Renald Showers and his book Maranatha: Our Lord, Come!
