Dr. Milton's personal story of moving from orphan and prodigal son to understanding Gods grace and receiving His adoption through Jesus Christ forms a frequent motif for offering Christs healing to a broken generation. Often his sermons are illustrated with songs that he writes, sings, and performs with guitar. An author of 11 books, including an autobiography, What God Starts, God Completes, he has also composed and recorded three musical albums under the Music for Missions label.
In addition to his pastoral work, Dr. Milton holds a commission in the US Army Reserves as a chaplain, a ministry that he continues as an instructor at the US Army Chaplain Center and School. Serving on several boards and active in a number of civic organizations, he also remains involved in preaching and teaching in churches, conferences, and seminaries.
