About The Author

My ministry has always been that of a parish pastor and a mission developer, with the exception of a few years as a college chaplain and the director of a counseling agency.

I have earned master’s degrees in theology from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, church history from Luther Seminary, St. Paul, and a doctorate in pastoral counseling from Chicago Theological Seminary.

My wife, Sylvia, and I are parents of three children, grandparents of six and great-grandparents of two. We currently live in a retirement village in south Texas.
