His skills and enthusiasm keep the technology of our internet ministry working well and expanding. He is married, and they have a young adult daughter.

Prayer NetworkPrayer Network – We have over 200 people from all around the world who have joined the Good News Prayer Network to pray for those who post prayer requests in our Prayer Room.


PriestsPriests – We collaborate with a number of priests. Msgr. Joseph Kimu of the Diocese of Blantyre in Malawi, Central Africa, is our Chaplain. Father Gary Dowsey, pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes in Dunedin, Florida, and Rosminian Father Rick Pilger of Blessed Sacrament in Seminole, Florida, are local priests who assist with prayer and other support on an as-needed basis. Many other priests are connected to us in less formal ways; read the unsolicited endorsements we’ve received from some of them.

Help Wanted – Good News Ministries is always open to the Holy Spirit-guided ideas of those who want to get involved as a team member.
