I am blessed to serve as Pastor of the West Bradenton Baptist Church in Bradenton, Florida, since June ’08. During the Fall of 2010, we also launched our first multi-site campus, North River Church, in Parrish, Florida. I have had the privilege of serving in a pastoral role since 1991 in various capacities (e.g. youth, college, young families).
I grew up in Bartlett, Tennessee, just outside of Memphis, TN. The Lord moved powerfully in my life as a freshmen in college regarding an unyielding commitment to Jesus Christ. I have never regretted that decision! I graduated from Memphis State University with a B.A. in Communications and a minor in Sociology. I received my Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. I am currently praying about beginning my doctoral studies in expository preaching.
My wife, Nova, and I have been married since June 1993 and we have one daughter, Abbie, a pug named Lulu, and a border collie/lab mix named Tootsie.
In My Sparetime
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family, golf, volleyball, reading, home renovations, the beach.
What I Enjoy Most About Ministry: I love seeing God completely transform a life and having the opportunity to be a small part of that process.
