Brief Biography: I am fully devoted to the ministry in the local church and I am a Baptist through and through. My passion is to reach people with the gospel to help them grow in faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ. I moved from California to Lynchburg, VA in 2011 to attend Liberty University. After graduating I stayed in town and began working on my M.Div from SEBTS. In October 2017 I married Hailey and we live in Lynchburg still. She works in Bedford county schools as an instructional aide. I am hoping to enter full time ministry in the future on the east coast and would love opportunities to preach in order to gain experience preaching.
