About Me

My life was forever changed on New Year's Eve in the year 2000. On that night, I repented of sin and started following Jesus. I have never been the same! 

God called me to preach His message. God has given me the opportunity to travel to almost every continent to preach the Gospel. I have been to South America, Central America, Africa, Russia, the Caribbean Islands, and the United Kingdom. I have seen God's Church operate in many different structures and settings. I love His Church! 

I spent some special years at North Greenville University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies. After NGU, I completed a Master of Arts Degree in Religion Leadership from Liberty Theological Seminary.  I finished my Master of Divinity Degree with high distinction in Practical Ministry from Trinity Theological Seminary. Currently, I am pursuing a Doctor of Ministry in Biblical & Theological Studies from Trinity Theological Seminary. I love to write and have published three books. 

The person that helps me look much better (and keeps me in line) is my wife Erica. We have been married since August of 2006. Our first child was born in March of 2013. As a family we love sports and share a hobby of playing golf together. Also, we love to travel. My wife is a teacher. Our joke is that God has called us to "teach, preach, and go to the beach!" 

I serve as Senior Pastor at Temple Baptist Church in Simpsonville, SC. Our church is obsessed with prayer, making disciples, and sharing the Gospel HERE, THERE, & EVERYWHERE! 

I have been called to lead but also to follow. At the end of the day I am on a journey too. One of my favorite verses is Philippians 3:12. It says "Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I PRESS ON so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus."

I am on a journey to apprehend the One that apprehended me! What a journey it is...my greatest desire in life is that you join me as we pursue God's glory!
