Who has had the most influence in your spiritual life?
First off, my wife who led me to the Lord and some very special pastors, they know who they are, but they have asked to remain nameless as to not receive there praise from man but their reward’s in Heaven. Also, my Menifee brothers and sisters from back
in the day when we called them “growth groups” and the Men’s Wednesday morning Bible study at Reliance.

Food you can’t live without?
Cow, Pig, Chicken. In that order

Which Bible character would you most likely to be best friends with?
I say Amos. He was a hard-working farmer a true-blue collar man, “The salt of the earth type person.” He said it himself,” “I’m neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet.” He had no training as a prophet, and he wasn’t seeking to be one. God called him and he immediately stopped what he was doing and left to the Northern Kingdom of Israel. Thus showing that God can use anyone – even me.
