Brief Biography: I was born in Americus, GA on December 27, 1978, and was raised in LaGrange, GA where I attended First Baptist Church for most of my life. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior in February of 1987 when I was 8 years old, and continued to grow in Christ throughout my time in the youth ministry at First Baptist Church. I graduated from Georgia Tech in December of 2001, and it was during my freshman year that I accepted God’s call into full-time ministry. Upon graduating from Georgia Tech, I began working towards a Master of Divinity Degree from New Orleans Baptist Seminary. After my first semester there I took an interim position at Arlington Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Fl where I expected to spend just one summer. However, it was at this church that I met my wife Jessica and we were married two years later. We have ministered together for the past eleven years and we believe that God has called our family into full-time ministry together. Last year we had our first daughter Sophie and our son Elijah was born just a few days ago. We currently serve as missionaries in Haiti and we believe that GOD has called us there full time. All of these experiences come out in my preaching and I cannot wait to serve with you and your congregation.
