A Personal Word

Following graduation from high school in Huntington Valley, Pa., I worked as a carpenter like many of my relatives and enjoyed it, but God called me into the ministry of the gospel.  I met my wife, Helen Stam at Wheaton College (Illinois) and while attending seminary in Philadelphia pastored my first church - the Point Pleasant Baptist Church on the Delaware River ten miles north of new Hope.

We have served churches in Western Springs, Illinois (20 years), Clifton, New Jersey (9 years) and now here in Bradenton, Florida (6 years)

In researching this little history I learned that many of my ancestors - and therefore yours - were earnest Christian believers.  It is my sincere prayer that all my relatives in the flesh might also be my relatives in Christ.  The Scriptures say that "God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself" and "there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus."
