In the late 1960s a young man dreaming of becoming a recording artist reached for stardom with a Detroit recording studio. When stardom didn't come he went to university where he was confronted with the teachings of Jesus Christ. Soon after he became a converted Christian and his life was redirected from himself, music and personal interests to fervent Bible study. That conversion was followed by being filled with the Holy Spirit while in theology school leading to a street ministry in Springfield, Ohio. He became an ordained minister serving in the USA and Canada, finding his beliefs through various churches finally leading to Independent Ministry. But his music followed him and would not let go. He continued writing songs.
That person is me.
Over the years I began to identify with the needs of the forgotten and neglected in society. My songs became my commentaries. My songs come about through personal observations, people I have met or walking the sidewalks and paths around my small town. You may sometimes find me in used guitar or bookstores.
But there is a part two to this story.
Mark 16:15 Ministries is a result of standing in an apartment in Lorain, Ohio years ago and asking the Lord to make the New Testament Biblical verse Mark 16:15 a reality in my life. I wanted to go into all the world one day for the Good News. Today that prayer is being answered through ministry and literature.
When I was a university grad student in Springfield Ohio in the 1970s I had one prayer. It was to help people find God's will for their lives. God has answered that prayer often and unexpectedly using me with the supernatural Word of Wisdom (1 Corinthians 12:8) and prophecy when I meet and speak with people. I am sometimes used to bring healing or discernment as a result of a vision I received from the Lord in 1972 under the ministry of Robert Thom from South Africa.
It's all Jesus. You can count on Him. He will see you through.
