After attending Bible College and Seminary, where he earned both Bachelor’s and Masters degrees in Biblical Studies, he and his wife spent twelve years serving as church planters in South Africa. Twenty years ago they returned to the U.S. and have served churches in Tennessee, Missouri, and Wisconsin. During this time, Vince was able to earn his Doctor of Pastoral Theology degree.
