Thanks for stopping by this site.

I am a believer in Christ, husband, father, pastor, and professor.

My wife Tammie and I have 5 sons and one daughter.  This is our first ministry.  The Children’s Hour blog grew out of sharing about books we have read together at home.

I serve as Vice President for University Ministries, Dean of the School of Theology & Missions and Professor of Biblical Studies 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.

The Oversight of Souls blog grew out of my pastoral ministry class and pastoral labors.

  1. Dear Ray,

    Hey, will you be at the upcoming ETS in Atlanta? If so, I’m wondering if we could have some time together to talk about some work I’m doing on the Pastoral Epistles. I met you last year at New Orleans at the Pastoral Epistles study group seminar. I currently teach at Talbot School of Theology in CA. Let me know. Thanks!

    In His Love,
