Just a brief comment about my life is that I am a follower of Jesus Christ, husband to my beautiful wife, dad to two amazing daughters, grandpa to five wonderful grandchildren, and ordained minister serving on staff with First Baptist Clarksville Tennessee – Military Ministry. I am also a combat veteran retired from active duty after twenty years of service in the United States Army.

I enjoy fishing for largemouth bass and hunting turkey and deer. Time in the woods or on the lake fishing is time to decompress and think. I am a graduate from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (Master of Theological Studies with Missions Emphasis, ’16) and Liberty University (Bachelor of Science in Religion, ’13).

Currently pursuing a Doctor of Educational Ministry with Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The focus of my ministry project is developing an integrated trauma care ministry that works with spouses of combat veterans struggling with post-traumatic stress caused by war.

My writings are personal thoughts shaped by my experiences and framed by a growing biblical worldview.

All the best!

Richard
