I was born and raised in Bossier City, LA. I grew up in a non-believing home but through a few (what I believe were God-appointed) friendships, I came to faith in Jesus Christ as my Savior my sophomore year of High School. Almost immediately I knew that God intended to use me in a full-time ministry setting. Because I lacked biblical and theological knowledge I decided to move to Arkansas to attend Ouachita Baptist University. During my time there, I took on a part-time Student Ministry position at the age of 19. I’m so thankful for God’s grace during that time because I had no idea what I was doing!
Upon graduation, I took on a full-time role at the same church working in the same position. Over the next several years I spent time in a couple of different churches in Arkansas before moving to Tyler, TX to work at Grace Community Church. After my first year there I met my wife Erin. I moved to Dallas the next year and we married in June of 2009. In 2010 I adopted her daughter, Isabel and since then we have had two more sons, Roman and Rhett.
I came on staff at Fellowship as an intern with High School Ministry in 2011. I became High School Pastor in 2012. In 2013 I came on staff full-time and added on responsibilities as one of the Counseling Pastors after completing a Masters in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. When I came on full-time I knew then that I would one day want to work more closely with families and parents. I am happy to say that in November of 2016 I became the Marriage and Parenting Pastor.
I absolutely love coming alongside families to see them pursue Jesus together.
