Now at 73, he serves by helping with his church’s outreach program, visiting on Sunday afternoons with newcomers who attended the worship service that morning.

Q: What influences in your life pointed you to Christ at the beginning of your faith journey?

A: My dad. He was a strong influence. He was a Baptist preacher. I had a lot of respect for him, watching him, the way he talked, the way he acted. 

Q: When and how were you led into your ministry work? 

A: My family lived in Baton Rouge, La., at the time. I accepted Christ when I was 9 years old at an RA camp in Bluff Creek, about 20 miles north of Baton Rouge.

Q: What does the ministry work demand?

A: It demands reading of the Bible. I often say that is our rulebook for guidance, telling us to go witness.

Q: What do you get from your ministry work? 

A: I’m fulfilled by my ministry work. I wish I could do more.

Q: What difference will your ministry work make for you in the future?

A: When the Lord opens the door for a ministry opportunity, you better take it. It’s later than you think.

Q: How do family members support you?

A: They’re great, tremendous. My wife helps me find references in the Bible I need for teaching.

Q: What difference has Jesus Christ made in your life? 

A: Tremendous. Tremendous. I took a Bible course several years ago. Those verses (the plan of salvation) are sort of the guide to my life today. When I have problems, I go back to the Bible and find specific things that He’s telling us to do.
