"But you have planted wickedness, you have reaped evil,
   you have eaten the fruit of deception." Hosea 10:12

The greatest joy we can receive is seeing people freed

from the deception and bitter roots of their past.

I started On Word Ministries in 1987 as a teaching and ministry outreach to churches, church leaders, and members of the body of Christ. We relocated our headquarters to Myrtle Beach, SC, in 2004. From there we are available for ministry to church leadership groups, conferences, seminars, and retreats anywhere in the US and in many other parts of the world as well. We also offer personal prayer ministry to couples and individuals who are seeking a closer personal relationship to God, or who feel unfulfilled or dissatisfied with their lives.

As a professor of Bible and Theology on college campuses I became disillusioned with the value of academics to help with the practical problems of life. Many students came to me thinking I ought to have answers for the problems they were facing. I wanted to help, but at first I was insecure in my approach because I had no formal training in psychology. So I would simply pray under my breath while they shared their problems... and answers began to come.

Fortunately, I have always cared for people more than I've cared about the academic side of my profession. That put me in touch with the One who loves them the most, and cares for them even more deeply than I do. Abba Father is the one who has the answers. Apart from him... I have nothing to offer.
