Website History

  • I actually built my first website my last year at the seminary. I used Adobe PageMill which was one of the first programs that let you build a website without having to know HTML code.
  • I then used Microsoft Frontpage which was a program that allowed you to easily build websites.
  • I now use Rapidweaver for Mac. I really like this program and you can add all kinds of fancy features to it by purchasing stacks and plug-ins.
  • I hope this website gives you a little insight into what a privilege it is to serve the Lord as a priest. I am very happy with the vocation the Lord has chosen for me. God is good! All the time!
  • If you have any questions/comments feel free to email me using the link at the bottom of the page.
