Thanks for visiting my personal website. At one time this site was exclusively used for my Gulf Coast beach wedding officiating services. I have officiated 5000+ beach weddings and vow renewals along beaches of Biloxi, Mississippi to Gulf Shores, Alabama to Pensacola Beach, Florida.

I am not able to officiate as often as I once was, because of my church and hospital chaplain ministries, but if you are looking for that information it is now at my Beach Wedding Officiating page.

Please subscribe to my Daily Promise devotionals, which are free by email subscription and offering 365 selected Bible promises, one verse per day, in chronological order from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21, with pastoral insight and encouragement.

It is convenient to join at any time during the year, at the Subscription Form, and easy to read on any device, smartphone, tablet, laptop, or personal computer, delivered to your inbox at 3:00 AM CST so it’s there when you awake. These one-minute devotionals are also available at my Facebook or Twitter.


CrossHope Chapel

Join me on Sunday mornings, 10:00 AM t12:00 PM, where I serve as pastor at CrossHope Chapel, a church in west Mobile, Alabama offering an informal fellowship with simple worship, prayer support, and verse-by-verse Bible teaching with open discussions.

CrossHope Chapel is a place where church is simpler, where you can encounter the grace of Jesus Christ, engage others in authentic Christian fellowship and find the simple teaching of God’s Word.


Bible Study Helps

I write and archive blog articles here in the categories of Bible Answers, Marriage Notes, Mere ObservationsPastoral Notes, and Simpler Church. You will find all of these at my Blog Articles page, where they are also searchable by title, category, or by topics.

You will also find free Bible study tools including my Verse Finder (375+ topics with related Scripture), a 7-lesson Bible Study Guides course, and a Course on Biblical Prayer.
