I have been engaged in teaching and training for over 25 years.I have presented in a wide range of contexts on an even wider range of subjects. In my teaching and training, I have always sought to be practical, to present the "how-to"s not just the "what"s.

Topical presentations on practical spirituality

In my teaching, I have sought to apply the truth of Scripture to everyday life and work out practical "how-to"s. I have sought to answer questions such as what does it mean that God has called me to Himself and how do I work it out in my life? The following is not a comprehnesive list but hopefully it will give a glimpse into the areas that God has been directing me to.
