Introducing the Shade Ministry

Registered with the State of Minnesota

It was bound to happen. A sign of the times we are all living through. A way to better proclaim my faith and to serve others in their search.

I have become a Minister. I became a Minister through ULC (Universal Life Church) in April 2011.  It took me four years of study to be confident that I could fullfil my obligations as a Minister.  In fact I’m still studying by taking a couple of courses through Yale and other Universities.

The State of Minnesota as of 04-17-2015 now recognizes my credentials and as a Minister capable of performing and  officiating  weddings, baptisms, funerals etc.

My relationship with the Holy Trinity is a long one and goes back to my childhood. Though never a big church goer, I’ve never wavered in my faith and God has always been there for me. He’s been there for me as a child, adolescent, teen, young adult, adult and now as we call ourselves a “mature” adult. Every single phase of my life the one constant I’ve always had is my faith and the acceptance of Jesus as my Savior.

Several recent events in my life pointed me to this path. In 2008 my wife survived a brain aneurism. She’s fully recovered and I treat every day with her as a God given gift to celebrate and to give thanks for. In 2012 my grandson Thomas was born. What a joy he has been and his birth demonstrates how the miracle of life can change you as a person and how the circle of life is eternal. I experienced that change with the birth of my children as well, but is so different watching a grandchild be born and then grow. The circle truly is unbroken!

My company and I teach self-defense to others. I believe as the Bible teaches us that good must always triumph over evil. That it is a moral imperative for the good to survive. Romans 12:21 tells us “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” And Isaiah 5:20 tells us “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

We are at that point in the affairs of good men and good women where good is being pointed to as evil, and evil as good. I wanted to take a stand against this mentality and proclaim my faith.  Our ministry is a Christian ministry: Based on the Bible. And if that offends the Agnostic, Atheist or Heaven help us the Muslim, or anyone else so be it. I’ll still offer you my hand, and still pray for you.

We're NOT a non-profit. This was done intentially so that my political voice won't be stiffled by IRS regulations that generally prohibit Churches, Priests and Ministers from being political. We have always been and will remain political. Supporting candidates that support our traditional Christian values and beliefs.
