I exist to glorify God by treasuring His Son above all things, and by spreading the joyful worship of Jesus Christ to the nations.
My story is still being written, but my biography is centered on my relationship with Jesus Christ.
I was born and raised in Alabama, and lived there until the age of 26 when I relocated to Memphis. While in Memphis, besides developing a love for Barbecue, I found a bride in Martha, now my wife of 20 years.
I was saved by the grace of God in October, 1998 in Orange Park, FL. My family joined Shindler Drive Baptist Church and remained there until 2000 when I took my family to Texas and began attending Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX.
While in DFW, we joined ourselves to Tate Springs Baptist Church in Arlington, TX. I also had the opportunity to serve bi-vocationally in two local churches. At South Burleson Baptist Church I served as Pastor to Youth and Families. Then I served as Associate Pastor of Chapel at the Villas. Truth is, I was tri-vocational! Working a full-time job, serving faithfully in the local church and attending seminary, as well as seeking to be a faithful husband and dad. Those were 6 years bursting with times of glorious struggle and great reward.
I graduated in 2006 and began serving in Sardis Baptist Church, located 45 minutes south of Augusta, GA. I was privileged to serve this church until June 2012. After 12 years of seminary and full-time ministry, I stepped down from the pastorate to rest, recover and spend time with my family. We now live in Arlington, TX. We re-joined Tate Springs and are preparing spiritually, emotionally, and financially for another season of ministry, wherever and however God may lead.
As we actively wait, God is providing avenues of ministry through Pulpit Supply, through serving in our local church, and providing me an opportunity to be a friend to pastors.
Husband: I am married to Martha. Dad: I have two step-children, Josh and Nina; and one daughter, Ellie. I rejoice in being “Papa” to 6 grand-children.
