Frontline Outreach to High Risk and Fatherless Youth

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by. I've been in full-time youth ministry since 1987 and in 2008 God led me to embark on a ministry journey focused on reaching high-risk and fatherless youth. My wife, Jennifer and I have been married since 1987 (that was a good year) and we have three great kids who aren't kids anymore. =)

Here on my blog, I write about Faith, Family and ministry to the Fatherless. If I can be of help to you in any way... let me know.

Whether you've been a Christian for a long time, a short time or still just seeking to learn more about God, I'd like to help you.

You'll notice I write about Faith... sharing thoughts, insights and experiences from my journey with God.

We can all use some encouragement and more understanding of who God is, what the Bible really teaches, and how it fits in to our life.

Feel free to contact me or comment on any of the blog posts with questions I might be able to address that would help you.


A few years ago, I created a series called PANIC: Parents of Adolescents Need Instruction and Care.

I've shared this in a parenting class that I've taught at church.

I write about family and parenting here on the blog.

Ministry To The Fatherless

I've learned a lot over the past few years about God's heart for the fatherless. There are so many ways to serve others and express our faith through ministry. God has led me to engage in ministry to the fatherless and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my Christian life. You'll see that I write about ways we can experience meaningful ministry... and especially ways we can lift up the fatherless.

Sharing is Awesome, Do It!
