God has provided a variety of experiences that get me to today.

Started out as a Preacher’s Kid in NC and then Ohio.  Didn’t really care for the phrase “PK” so I renamed myself after one of the biggest and badest cars in the market, the GTO.  For me, it stands for Great Theologians Offspring.

I have not been called to be a Pastor but God has given me the opportunity to meet Presidents, Actors, Directors, Farmers, Governors and plenty of just plain Americans.

I started my first business at age 14 and by the time I went to Mississippi College I had enough money to write a check from my own bank account to pay for all tuition and books.

Although this was not easy, it began a 40+ year journey to where I am today.

Yes, I am called by God to minister and I enjoy preaching, teaching, wedding and even funerals but I still I am not a Pastor.  Don’t know what you would call me but whatever it is, it is ministry-oriented.
