My Responsibilities at BridgePoint
Most of my responsibilities focus on five areas:
• Sunday morning preaching/teaching
• Clarifying and communicating our present vision emphasis
• Encouraging and managing our stellar BridgePoint staff
• Developing new leadership
• Shepherding the body at BridgePoint
My Passions in Ministry
I love that God chose to describe His church as a body – many parts yet one! There is a powerful sense of acceptance and purpose for each individual in that word picture, yet in Him we are a part of something so much bigger and greater than ourselves! I am passionate about people finding their place in the body of Christ – loving and being loved, serving and being served, reaching out and growing deep.
A little more about me
God has given me a tremendous family. My wife Celia (who serves as a school nurse at Bunker Hill Elementary School) and I have been married since 1985. We have 4 children – Joel, Emily, Jared and Amy – who we enjoy immensely. It is remarkable watching them grow up and launch out! I attended Texas A & M University (B.S. Biomedical Science, 1982) and Dallas Theological Seminary (ThM, 1988). I love college football, being outside, working around the house and dream of kayaking the Mississippi from end to end.
