Background Information

I am an ordained minister of 35 years and just recently "retired" to become more involved in mission work.  I "retired" from  the Divine Hope Church  in Oakland, MD, an independent, non-denominational congregation.. I am married to Cathy (for 45 years) and have two sons. Prior to entering into pastoral ministry, I was in managment positions for the former Ohio Bell Telephone Company (now AT&T) and Sears. I was a teaching and counseling pastor, having done over 25,000 hours of pastoral counseling. I was a part-time adjunct instructor at Garrett College teaching Introduction to Communication courses (public speaking) and First Year Experience for incoming freshmen. I am now part of a Board of Trustees for a non-profit, taxe exempt mission ministry named Seeds And Love Together, Inc. (SALT). Over the years I have witnessed first hand the impact that life traumas have on people, much of it negative. Instead of being fulfilled in life, life often seems incomplete and even helpless and/or hopeless. It is this issue that prompted me to co-author my first book. I am currently working on my Doctorate Degree in Pastoral Counseling through Andersonville Theological Seminary.

Additional Information

The first book I have authored (with another pastor friend of mine) is "M.E.S.H.: How to Have Mental, Emotional, Spiritual Health for Life" through Publish America. The book was released on July 3, 2006 and was available through Publish America's Online Bookstore and online from Barnes and Noble,, Borders, Books-A-Million, Chapters (in Canada), and a number of international bookstores around the world. However, the copyright has reverted back to myself and Reverend Carroll and is no longer in print. Consideration is being given to an updated version of this book in the hear future. I am currently writing a second book dealing with the personal discovery of one's personal passion, purpose or destiny which is expected to be submitted for publication later in 2014.
