I thoroughly enjoy being part of the ministry of The JOY FM. For me “doing” radio was a something like a childhood dream. I would set up my turntable, microphone, and cassette player and play radio on a regular basis. I would even get the phone book and write commercials. I know that I said that it was a childhood dream, but I was still doing this into my early twenties. I finally realized my dream in the late 1980’s with a couple of short stints in secular radio. When that ended, I kept reminding God how much I really, really, really liked radio.
I answered His call into full-time ministry on January 7, 1990 (also my 1 year wedding anniversary). After being part of church ministry for a little over 12 years, God remembered how much I like radio. After a bumpy transition, mainly because I am a little slow in understanding what He wants, I became part of The JOY FM family.
I am married to, possibly one of God’s most awesome creations: Nancy. I have two wonderful sons: Caleb and Josiah. Family is very important to me and after missing so much time early on, I am careful to keep them a priority, especially with such a busy schedule.
