FA MILY
I was born February 9, 1976 and married Erin January 1, 2000. My wife has a Master’s
degree in Religion from Liberty University and currently teaches middle school. She
serves the church however she feels led by God. We have six children: Isaac, Karis, Elijah,
Ellee, Samuel, and Korbyn.
LIFE MIS SION
Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and along with my wife, I desire to be an
encouragement and a catalyst in the lives of others to spur them on for Christ. My desire
is to show the love of Christ in all I do by biblical teaching, preaching, making disciples,
building relationships, and serving people. I enjoy the difficult tasks of home and hospital
visits, and I see that as a gift to be able to serve people in some of their most difficult
times.
PH IL OS OPH Y OF MINISTRY
My philosophy of ministry is developed out of three relationships that God intends for
His children. Every maturing believer in Christ needs to be growing in these three
relationships: 1) Our relationship with God through faith and worship 2) Our relationship
with fellow believers through love, edification, and accountability 3) Our relationship with
unbelievers by sharing the Gospel message through words and actions so that they would
become disciples of Christ.

EXPERIENCE
Lead Teaching Pastor, North Valley Fellowship, Las Vegas, NV — 6/2014- 2/2015
This was a step of faith and although it was a short time serving there, God used me to
pour into the lives of several people. I preached and encouraged the church to have a love
for His Word. I began discipling three men on a weekly basis.
Pastor, Wakulla Springs Baptist Church, Crawfordville, FL — 2008-2014
While I was serving there, I was able to be a part of some great ministries. I was blessed to
baptize many new believers and encourage others to grow and mature in their
relationship with God. We were able to start a garden on our church property where food
went to feed the local people that were without. We served the special needs students
every year with a Prom. This was such a special time each year to love and encourage
these families. I was able to pour into a group of men as leaders in the church. We started
a worship service at a hunting camp in the woods to reach the local hunters. We also
started a service at an RV park to reach those who were unable to drive to the church
building. We were also a part of launching a new church plant with members from our
church.
Pastor, Faith Temple Baptist Church, Irving, TX — 2005-2008
This was a very interesting time of service since most of the church were senior citizens.
We were able to bring in students from Dallas Baptist University and lead and guide them
in ministry. These young and older people had a special relationship and it was great to
see them grow. We still keep in touch with many of the senior members and have been
able to keep up with the younger ones that have gone on to serve in ministry elsewhere.
We were able to see a commitment to missions by dedicating 20% of our budget to
missions.
Student Ministry, Various Ministries and Churches — 1994-2005
I served in several churches as either a youth pastor or as an intern. I was able to build
relationships with many and encourage them in their faith. And although I have not been
a youth minister for ten years now, I still keep in contact with some of my students.
