Seminary Graduation

Seminary (M.Div. Homiletics) is finished “with distinction” and fully paid for… only in Christ.


(See diploma and backstory below.)

Some have abandoned me when needed most. I thank the Lord for those of you who have not jumped to conclusions, but instead have unconditionally loved and supported (2 Cor 6:3-10). Thank you!

“Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.” Matthew 7:1-2

The Backstory:

In 2000, I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a dual major Bachelor’s degree in Business and Political Science. In my past life, my grades were less than stellar.

While climbing the corporate ladder at PNC Bank for nearly 15 years, the Lord brought me to repentance and called me to the ministry.

Repeatedly reprimanded for evangelizing the workplace and refusing to support the LGBTQ agenda under the banner of “Diversity & Inclusion,” it was impossible to remain faithful to the Lord while also pleasing PNC. The Lord led to Cambodia.

Initially rejected from seminary, treated as inferior by many pastors and ultimately my wife, I delayed. Much like the bank, it has been impossible to remain faithful to the Lord while also maintaining the approval of the church.

Interestingly, the Lord used the pressure of these trials to strengthen and provoke me to action…

For the past two years, I have been studying online from Cambodia in Liberty University’s John W. Rawlings School of Divinity.

In December 2022, I graduated “with distinction” (GPA 3.93) with a Masters of Divinity in Homiletics (Preaching).

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.” 2 Timothy 4:3-5

Lesson Learned: No matter what happens, Fight Forward to please God, not people.
