At the age of 21, my life’s journey forever changed when I came to know Jesus Christ. I soon realized that He was calling me into the ministry, but I wasn’t sure exactly what that meant. So I loaded up the car and drove from Waco, Texas, to Chattanooga, Tennessee, to start my college education all over again at Tennessee Temple University. It was there that the Lord fine-tuned my ministry goals, had me meet the wife of my dreams, and taught me how to help people become growing disciples of Christ.

A few years later, I went back to school and earned a Masters Degree from Liberty University and a Doctorate from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. I’ve worked at churches in Tennessee, Chicago, and Florida as a Student Pastor and a Senior Pastor.

I joined the staff of Indian Rocks in 2014. I love helping people grow in the faith by teaching them God’s Word and by helping them get connected with others in the church. Leading the adult ministries gives me the privilege of doing just that. I’m so blessed to be a part of what God is doing here at Indian Rocks!

My wife Lisette is a lead teacher for Florida Virtual Schools, and my three children graduated from IRCS. I love vacationing with the family in the mountains, playing with our Labradoodle Phoebe, and enjoying a strong cup of Café Bustelo.
