I have a bachelor's degree in Pharmacy from Auburn University and a doctorate degree in Pharmaceutics. After finishing graduate school I became a pharmacokinetic reviewer for the Food and Drug Administration and later joined a leading pharmaceutical company as a pharmacokineticist. If you are still looking for a profession and like math and science, check it out. It is where you mathematically describe the concentration profile of a drug within the human body. Pretty cool.

I also have a master's degree in Jewish Studies from the Internet Bible Institute (2008) under the tutelage of Dr. Robert Condon and I have completed my doctorate in Biblical Prophecy with Louisiana Baptist University (2014). If you would like to increase your Bible knowledge, check out IBI:
In 2010, my wife, Heidi, and I took a trip to Israel. What a very rewarding experience. We had a great time, ate some wonderful food, saw some awe inspiring sites, met some wonderful people, and learned so much about Israel's history and its people. If you have not had a chance to visit the Holy Land, then I would highly recommend it. We took a trip with the students in the Bible & Israel program at Cairn University (what was at that time Philadelphia Biblical University). A trip to Israel was part of their curriculum and they allowed other adults to join them. If you would like to learn more about the program or the trip, check out itsIsrael & Archeology program. It was a very rewarding experience for us.
There are 4 men that have had a large impact on my Christian life: (1) my father - he taught the adult Bible class at the small rural church where I grew up for almost as long as I can remember until he passed away. I guess that is why I developed such a love for the Old Testament; (2) Robert Congdon - when I started taking courses with the Internet Bible Institute, Dr. Congdon opened up the Bible to me in ways that I had never thought before. He helped to rekindle the love of Scripture that had grown dormant; (3) Dr. Renald Showers - reading his books has opened my mind to deeper meaning of Scripture and he has such a way to clearly explain God's word that has enhanced my appreciation of Scripture; (4) Mike Otto - he has been my pastor for more than 20 years. He has a way of presenting Scripture that really makes it personal, and his love for God and His Word comes through every time. I have also seen him so consistent in his Christian walk even through troubled times, and I find him so inspiring. Check out some of his teachings here.
May God Bless you richly,
