This web site is about “Training Jesus Followers.” On this site I am the curator of many 13 week Bible studies as the “Tag Cloud” at the bottom of the right column will suggest. There are book studies and miscellaneous articles that you might find interesting.

Now, Let me introduce myself.

I have functioned as a publisher, Bible teacher, pastor, and writer for over forty years. I have taught in the church and in the college system during that time. I am the founder and president of Seeing the Bible Live Ministries, Missio Dei Learning Community, and Harmon Press.

I served as the Research Director for Vineyard Ministries International, Anaheim, CA, and was the Editor for two years of First Fruits the first Vineyard publication where I edited and administered a monthly magazine publication with a circulation of 25,000. I created the Vineyard Institute for Ministry, which was the first training center for young Vineyard pastors where I authored and taught five new courses in a two-year span. I gave oversight to personnel and training in two other Vineyard schools and have made hundreds of public presentations.

I am the author of God’s EPIC Adventure in pBook and eBook formats, which is a tour of the Story of God. Take a look at my amazon.com author’s page. Previously, I wrote a quarterly Bulletin Insert publication called WordWise for local churches interested in providing their folks with a weekly Bible study. These bulletin inserts are now being converted to books and eBooks and pBooks. The first book that has been published is googling God’s Will: Why Keep Searching for It When It’s Not Lost? as a pBook and eBook. I have finished and published a third book entitled Gracelets: Being Conduits of the Extravagant Acts of God’s Grace in pBook and eBook form.

I love spending time with my family, collecting baseball cards, watching movies, eating banana sandwiches, traveling, reading mystery stories as pBooks and eBooks on my Kindle, and watching sports. I have a Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts and two Doctor of Ministry degrees. The first doctorate was in Biblical Studies while the second doctoral program was at George Fox University, Portland, OR, in Leadership in the Emerging Culture.

I am happily married to Donna Faith and we have two adult children, Jason, who is not married to Lynn and Jeramie Joy and live in Washington State.

Jesus Followers


There are many synonyms to use for the word believer, which is the most common word for a person who has "converted" to follow Jesus. I have chosen "Jesus follower(s) or follower(s) of Jesus instead of the word believer in these presentations to allow the reader an opportunity to move away from the idea of believer which conjures up the possible thought of "ascent" to a set of doctrines that have been assembled by different groups over the centuries and show up in this day and age as a set of statements posted on web sites and other written material. These sets of beliefs are suggested by many as the ones that one should ascent to so that upon death the one who assents can go to heaven, i.e., just believe and you are good to go. Jesus followers/followers of Jesus suggest an action that one should take. Remember, Jesus told his disciples to follow him. Yes, belief is important, but one must move beyond belief to action.
