Sword & Shield Ministry
Serving those who Protect and Serve
Blessed are the peace makers; for they shall be called the children of God. Matthew 5:9
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
It is my desire to be an extension of the local church as I minister to the spiritual needs of the men and women in our law enforcement agencies. Having been a law enforcement family for the past several years, I have seen first hand the impact of society on these officers, their spouses, and their children. My goal is to stand in the gap for these individuals as I seek to be a light and to show forth Christ, who can give them hope, strength, and encouragement in these challenging times.
I am reminded of the words of the Apostle Paul as he charged Timothy to do the work of an evangelist, and to make full proof of his ministry.
After having the privilege for 23 years to pastor the wonderful people of the Gospel Baptist Church in Mocksville, NC, God has changed the direction of my life. For the past 4 ½ years, I have had the privilege to be a volunteer chaplain with the NC State Highway Patrol - district E7 for Davie and Yadkin counties. In October of 2020, I was able to take some Law Enforcement Crisis Response training at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police department. It was there that God began to work in my heart concerning the great need to minister unto those that God refers to in Romans 13:4 as the minister of God to thee for good.

“For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But, if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.”
Romans 13:4 (KJV)
It is my desire to help and minister unto our law enforcement officers on a greater scale:
1. Local - Police and Sheriff Departments
2. State – Highway Patrol & other State Law Enforcement Agencies
3. National - Rapid Response Team through the Sharing Hope in Crisis ministry
This includes all law enforcement agencies across the United States.
It is important to realize that most agencies require chaplains to be vetted and be certified in specific areas to be able to minister to their officers and within their departments. I have completed those requirements and am a certified Chaplain for the NC State Highway Patrol as well as the Rapid Response Team for Law Enforcement.
Please pray for my wife and I as I am currently presenting the ministry and/or preaching in different churches raising awareness and support to be able to fulfill the ministry in which God has called me to do.
