I am an ex-member and minister of the Churches of Christ. I have been away since 1971. Since then I have ministered with Friends Churches (Quaker) and the Mennonite Church. I have also been involved mostly with house churches since 1984.
Now I am willing to return to the "restoration fold" as an agent of grace and to work as a bivocational minister. I am a Registered Nurse, so a salary requirement is not much of an issue.
As far as eduction goes, I have a B.A. (Bible) from ACU (1969), an M.S. from ACU-Dallas (1980), an M.Div. from Earlham School of Religion (Quaker) (1983), and work at Brite Divinity School and Anderson Theological Seminary.
To be honest, I am a theological fundamentalist (in the good sense of the word). I believe in Biblical Inerrancy, the fellowship of ALL believers in Christ (from all churches and denominations), a non-cessationist view of the Holy Spirit and the supernatural gifting of the Holy Spirit, believer's baptism & the Lord's Supper & footwashing, and am historic Premill. in eschatology (a literal Antichrist, 1,000 year reign on Christ on Earth, but no pre-mill rapture. I teach and believe that the Body of Christ will go through the Tribulation). Also, I am 100% Pro-life: no war, no abortion, and no executions. I believe we are baptized because we have been saved not in order to be saved. It is all by the grace of God, and all we can do is to believe in the One God has sent-Jesus the Christ.
Well that describes me. Any takers or comments?
Peace in our Lord Jesus,
