1967- 1979 Church Planting and Bible Institute ministry in Central America
We served in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador during these years. We were involved with other BIMI missionaries in the starting and establishment of a number of churches and taught in at least two National Bible Institutes. The nine years we served in El Salvador before the civil war were seemingly the most fruitful and today there are 50 churches that have grown out of the Miramonte and Tabernacle Baptist Churches. The missionary investment, the seeds sown and the faithfulness of the national pastors has been used greatly of the Lord.
1980-1983 Served as pastor of the Bible Baptist Church in Ft Pierce, FL.
The BBC was in danger of closing its doors and only had five or six people that were faithful to all of the services. We took it as a missions project and by God’s grace were able to re-establish it leaving it on good financial footing and an average of 140 in Sunday School. We resigned from BIMI in 1981 in order to avoid confusion about support.
1984-1988 Served as the Director of Missionary Aviation Institute, Winston Salem, NC. This is the Aviation Department at Piedmont Baptist College.
1989 to present: Re-instated as missionaries with BIMI.
We served for a brief time in Mexico and at the Texas Mexican Border before accepting the responsibility as Assistant USA Director over Hispanic Ministries in the USA. In the ten years that we served in that capacity we saw the Lord Jesus Christ raise up a number of Hispanic Ministries in English speaking churches and also a number of autonomous Hispanic Churches. We started and established the Iglesia Bautista Getsemaní in Hendersonville, NC and were able to turn it over to a national pastor in March of 2002.
At present time the Lord has given to me the privilege of serving as Candidate, Deputation and Aviation Director as well as staying active in Spanish ministries in Central America and the USA.
I have written two books: The Basics of Church Planting and Indigenous Churches—The Goal of Biblical Missions
