Born of God the Father, through Jesus Christ His only Son
Born of earthly parents on the Oneida Reservation in Wisconsin
Growing up was a struggle as our family was part of the 1956 Indian Relocation Act and were moved to the City of Chicago. Alcohol was and is a big part of the American Indian’s way of life and at the age of 15 I was being caught in it’s web.
Thank God for a mother who sent me and my siblings to a neighborhood Sunday School. In 1971 a revival swept across this nation among some colleges. Collegians left their schools and swept the nation with their message of salvation through Christ. As I listened, God began to move in my life . These men obeyed the Holy Spirit’s leading and reached out to street kids! This is when my life changed.
Acceptance of this salvation meant a new pathway, one directed by my heavenly Father who said: “This is the way, walk ye in it.” (Isaiah 30:21)
This path led to Trinity Bible College, Moody Bible Institute, Carson Newman College graduating with a Bachelor of Arts Degree and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity Degree, marriage and the raising of 3 children.
After 40 years of pastoral ministry it’s time to move on -- the path is leading back to my roots -- Ministry to Native Americans.
