Occupation Missionary to Ireland under appointment with WorldVenture
Location Portland, Oregon, United States
Introduction Since 1994 I have been the pastor of Sellwood Baptist Church in Portland, OR. Before that I was a missionary in South Brazil for many years. Until just recently I have also served as a police chaplain with the Portland Police Bureau. Now, however, God has a new assignment for us. My wife and I have been appointed with WorldVenture and are preparing to move to Ireland to help plant a new church in Sligo, a small city in NW Ireland. I'm married to Ramel, a crazy, beautiful redhead that I love more than life itself. We have three great kids, Jonathan, Chris, and Simoni who have given us ten wonderful grandchildren. We are truly blessed.
Interests I love fishing, reading, making music, guns, and spending time with friends and family. I also love motorcycles, especially my Black Beauty, a big black n' chrome touring bike that always makes my heart beat faster whenever I look at her.
Favorite Movies I don't have a specific one but I love old westerns and murder mysteries. Jimmy Stewart is my favorite old-time actor.
Favorite Music I love Brazilian music, in fact, Latin music of all kinds, plus contemporary Christian, and Big Band stuff. Now I'm learning about Irish music and starting to love that too.
Favorite Books The Bible is the best book of all time, but I also like anything by Ludlum, Clancy, John D. MacDonald, Louis L'Amour, Patrick McManus, C.S. Lewis, or Randy Alcorn.
