With this as his goal he has developed new home buyers and health programs for low income families, he has worked in soup kitchens, prison ministry, coached children’s sports, instituted voter registration drives, managed a serious offender youth home, helped build homes for Habitat for Humanity, and has served on too many boards and committees to mention.
