Two years later, he began working in Christian ministry. He attended the University of Richmond and received his Masters of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Texas. He later graduated from Luther Rice Seminary with his Th.M. and Th.D. degrees. In Touch Ministries began as a half-hour religious television program called "The Chapel Hour."

During the 1980s, his ministry's broadcasts were available in nearly every major American media market.
