He founded Word of Life Association – a non-profit, tax exempt organization to promote teaching, preaching and Biblically based Christian Counseling. In 1988 he began traveling overseas conducting pastor’s conferences, and evangelistic meeting in Ghana, West Africa and Honduras, Central America. For twenty plus years he traveled to over sixteen countries spreading The Gospel of Christ through preaching, teaching and counseling. When between trips, he taught Bible Study groups through the Metro Atlanta area as well as counseling individuals and couples in their times of trouble.
