TESTIMONY   

I was born in West Virginia and graduated from Teays Valley Christian School in 1997. I received a clear call to the ministry on a summer mission trip to the Philippines after a worship service at Spurgeon Chapel in Manila. I finished up my undergraduate degree at Fairmont State University, married my wife Susan, enrolled at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and immediately started into the ministry as a student pastor at Carey Baptist Church in 2002. I have served Jesus in vocational ministry ever since. I am blessed with two wonderful children, Eli and Emery, and a wife that is also actively involved in the ministry as an accomplished ministry leader.

MINISTRY PHILOSOPHY  

I employ a ministry model grounded in the ministry philosophy of Jesus Christ. He encouraged people to come and see, to come and grow, and to come and go. Therefore, I build ministry systems that give Christians the necessary resources to freely and creatively utilize their spiritual gifts as they encourage people to come and see who Jesus is, to come and grow in relationship with Jesus, and to come and go with the gospel to their own cultural context. My doctrinal beliefs are in line with that of the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.
