I am a Vietnam Veteran and retired Detroit police officer. Even though, I am happily married and blessed beyond measure, I suffered greatly from depression. As a result of the war, I also battled PTS (Post Traumatic Syndrome) as well as sleep apnea which later led to critical anxiety. It was not until my encounter with this ministry that I found the Lord and truly made a permanent change in my life. Not only did changing my life affect me it impacted those around me. I made a choice to no longer be held captive by the struggles in my life but to take it captive and serve the Lord! Today, I am the Assistant Pastor to Inside Out Church of Jesus Christ, in which without this place and its leaders I would not be here today. My wife and I faithfully lead the prison ministry where we seek to guide others to Christ and make an everlasting change in their life. My wife drew me into Christ and now I am saved and my daughter is saved and serving the Lord. I thank God for the leaders of this ministry and their influence on my family. It is my endeavor to touch other lives just as they have mine.
