The love of my life is my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is why I exist. My beautiful bride Hope and I are blessed with four amazing children (Jake, Jonah, Faith, and Josh). Hope and I cherish the opportunity to raise them up in the joy of Christ Jesus and are understanding more and more every day that, “children are a heritage from the Lord” (Psalm 127:3).
I was born and raised in Cayce, SC where I received my call to ministry at First Baptist Church, Cayce SC. I have been a pastor for over 24 years and I have served churches in Hopkins, SC, Kings Mountain, NC, Duncan, SC, Charleston, SC, and Greer, SC.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree from The University of South Carolina. My Master of Divinity is from Gardner-Webb University. In 2014 I completed my Doctor of Ministry from North Greenville University in Tigerville, SC. My doctoral dissertation was on equipping parents to disciple their children.
Health and Fitness are very important to me. I enjoy hiking, biking, and weight training. I want to be physically able to do whatever and go wherever God calls at any moment. I also enjoy following the Gamecocks and the Atlanta Braves. But most of all I enjoy spending time with my family.
