Worth, TX; and a Doctor of Ministry degree from the Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Austin, Texas.  He has written one book, Sixty-six Devotions from Sixty-six Great Books.  “I believe Jesus Christ came into this world to redeem those created in God’s image, and this redemption is experienced through acceptance of Christ’s salvific act on the cross.  It is not God’s desire that any are lost, and through Christ we all have the splendid and humbling opportunity to become and live as ‘new creations’ today and even better ones in the promised tomorrow.”  He did all of this after spending some years as a stand-up comedian and an R & B singer.  Perryn believes that “God’s sense of humor is on a whole ‘nuther’ level!”
