I was blessed to be raised in a Christian home by two loving parents. I struggled initially with the decision to give my life to Jesus, but at age 12 I finally came to a point of surrender to His lordship over me. I then struggled some more with God’s call to ministry, but I surrendered to that, as well, as a freshman at Baylor University.

It was at Baylor that I met my beautiful and kind bride, Lydia. She and I have three sons, Caleb, James, and Jackson. I am so thankful for the family God has given me.

After Baylor, I attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in answer to my call to ministry. I’ve served churches in Arkansas since 2010, and I’ve been the pastor of First Baptist Bull Shoals since 2017. I hope to see God use my ministry to bring about more and more disciples of Jesus following Him in a healthy way.

In my free time, I enjoy playing games, reading, shooting, and hunting.
