I was born and raised in Metro Atlanta. I met my wife, Katie, the summer after high school graduation. We were married the following year in July, 2000, and moved to her hometown of Cullman, AL. We began attending Temple Baptist Church in June 2003. We've served in various ministries throughout the church including worship, preschool, guest services and students. Along the way, we have been blessed with two boys, Riley and Ty.
In 2009, as I was leading the student ministry in a volunteer capacity, God changed my ministry direction that would lay the groundwork for my current ministry today. I transitioned from students to Life Groups. In June 2013, I quit my job with Cullman County to step into full-time ministry as the Life Groups Pastor here at Temple. It has been an incredible journey so far and I am looking forward to the Lord leading me to accomplish even greater things for him in the future.
As Life Groups Pastor, God started to stir my heart for church planting. I didn't know the details like when or where, but I knew for certain that something was about to change. I thought I would have to move my family across the country or even the world to follow through on this church planting endeavor. In January 2017, through the providence of God and a very unique partnership, I became the Campus Pastor of the Fairview Campus of Temple Baptist Church.
