For the past nine years I have served as a pastor at Calvary Chapel in Vista, California. With my pastor's approval, words of encouragement and blessing, I am now launching out on my own into a full time itinerant teaching ministry. Of course, I won't be on my own. Jesus said, "I am with you always, even until the end (Matt. 28:18-20)." I look forward to having more time now to devote to developing new studies, researching, writing, teaching, and blogging! May the Lord bless all of you who enjoy this blog and the AlwaysBeReady.comwebsite. I covet your prayers.
