Called to preach at 25, the author graduated from a church college in 1975. While there, he was introduced to the full gospel message by other students, and began a lifelong pursuit of the whole-counsel-of-God. After one year at Kenneth Hagin’s Rhema Bible Training Center he moved back to Alabama, where he and his wife began to learn how to walk out what they had learned in Oklahoma. Slow progress, ministry disappointment and the stress of everyday problems put his ministry on the back burner until the late 1990’s, when a prophecy by a local elder stirred his passion once again. Fresh revelation began to flow, and other prophecies added direction to his ministry as a teacher, and finally as an author.
