Thanks for stopping by this site.
I am a believer in Christ, husband, father, pastor, and professor.
My wife Tammie and I have 5 boys and one little girl. This is our first ministry. The Children’s Hour blog grew out of sharing about books we have read together at home.
I teach at Union University, my alma mater and where I met my wife. We are delighted for the opportunity to be a part of this community which has meant so much to us. I teach classes in New Testament, Greek, and pastoral ministry. I also direct the R. C. Ryan Center for Biblical Studies.
The Oversight of Souls blog grew out of my pastoral ministry class and pastoral labors.
