Open Letter to Pastors and Friends:

 Dear Friends:

            As many of you know that in 2002 my family and I moved to New York City to develop a post 9/11 ministry. Despite some challenges and eventually moving back to Cincinnati in early 2003 God did allow some awesome relationships to come from the NYC experience.

            The number one relationship that came from the trip was a friendship with Dr. Charles Travis Founder/President of Logos Global Network and at the time was Chancellor of Logos University in Jacksonville, Florida. Over the years we have prayed together, laughed, and encouraged each other in ministry (honestly, I would have to say he has done most of the encouraging).  A few years ago, as the Lord lead Dr. Travis and several others to launch a new Christian University he called and asked if I would join the faculty and serve on the Board of Regents. I was so honored by the call and without hesitation the answer was YES.

            We are now into our second year and I have the privilege of working with not only Dr. Travis but some amazing men and women of God to establish a world-wide ministry that will impact nations with the Gospel of Christ. 

            As President of Grace Church of the Valley School of Ministry my heart is to educate and equip the local church and community to impact those around us. However, as a Board member and Faculty member or Aidan University my heart is to impact the regions around the world educating and equipping pastors, counselors, and church members to impact their communities and church.

            I’m currently in the process of working with Dr. Travis and others to establish a cohort for Master’s and Doctoral level students in the field of Christian Counseling. If this is something you would be interested in, please let the office staff know.

            If you are looking for an awesome online Christian University that will work with you to achieve your educational goals, please contact my friends @ Aidan University. If you have questions for me personally, I can be reached at 

Reflecting on scripture!
