FAMILY – Married Stefanie on January 12, 2001 in Livingston, TN; 3 children: Anna (6/29/06), Liam (7/20/09), and Isla (8/30/10)
SALVATION – In October of 1985, an evangelist named Carlos Walker held services in the small country church pastored by my grandfather. One evening I felt called to salvation, but was afraid to meet with Brother Walker during the invitation. After services, my grandfather led me in the decision to surrender my life to Christ.
MINISTRY CALLING – Having been accepted to college in the pre-optometry program, I thought my life was all mapped out. Little did I know God had other plans. In June of 1997, God called me into the ministry. I didn't know what that would look like, but I knew I couldn't imagine doing anything else with my life. I was given the opportunity to preach my first message in September of that year.
EDUCATION – I earned a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (HIstory and Psychology) from Tennessee Technological University before going on to study at the graduate level. I have studied at several institutions, but hold degrees from Temple Baptist Seminary (Master of Ministry, 2009), and Union University (Doctor of Ministry, 2015).
MINISTRY FOCUS – My primary calling is to equip the church by serving, teaching, and preaching the Word of God. It is in His Word that we find truth, hope, and instruction.
