I have worked with Special Touch for three years as their New England Camp worship leader and last year as their New England Camp evangelist.

In addition I have been privileged to be a member of the core team that launched New England’s first Special Touch chapter, REACH New England .

REACH stands for Respecting Everyone’s Ability to Choose Hope!

Our bowl-a-thon is one of the ways that this vital ministry raises funds to operate.

My team, GUTTERS FOR JESUS, consists of myself, Jody Clapp, Lisa Johnson and Tim Freeman.

Would you consider sponsoring Special Touch through us. It’s easy just go to my first giving page HERE

What Happened To Pastor Wrinkles?

Any of you who have been following me for any length of time know my alter ego is Pastor Wrinkles. Both of us (which is really just me) have been absent from WordPress for the better part of two weeks. It has been a busy and fruitful time of ministry. The first week I was busy writing sermons for the second week. Over the course of the last seven days I have preached eleven times and led one baptism service It has been an incredibly rewarding time. I marvel at what God is doing through one such as I.

It is a time of mighty harvest folks and I believe we are just at the beginning.

Here are some photos of the week that has just passed.
