He was a public school administrator for over 25 years in addition to teaching at the elementary, secondary and college levels. He served on numerous local, district and university boards. After being called into the ministry he pastored for nearly twenty years in small and large churches. Recently, he retired and is following his passion for helping pastors develop basic skills for successful pastoral ministry through “LAF Ministries”; his radio program, “The Pastor’s Institute”; coaching/mentoring pastors; speaking at churches along with authoring this book.
