Raised in southern California for his first 20 years, could life be good in any other place? Denny left California in 1975 to take on four years of preaching training followed by almost forty years of preaching in Arkansas, Texas, Washington, Colorado, and now in the Kansas City area of Missouri. In 1979, he was greatly blessed to make a beautiful young lady, Donna Burt, his lifelong friend, companion, and wife! Eight children (yes, that is an "8") later, including four adoptions from China, Denny feels he has had a full life! Oh yes, by the way, Denny has learned that life is good (better?) outside of California! Of course, Jesus is the foundation of all that is good!
