Due to the Lord’s grace and the faithful teaching of the Scriptures through my parents and a Gospel-centered home church, I began following Jesus at the age of nine. At the age of 15 I really began to understand the significance of complete surrender to Jesus with my life. It was then that I realized my life was to completely reflect the Jesus that rescued me. As a teen, outwardly I was seemingly devoted to my faith, yet inwardly I walked in consistent sin and disobedience up until my early years of college. Over the next couple of years, God was gracious in His patience with me and provided a stretch of faithful men in my path that would lead me in my discipleship of Jesus.
Also, during that time, the Lord graciously blessed me with my beautiful wife Tonnie as a consistent accountability and encouragement to my faith. The Lord has blessed us with two, incredible boys, Jude and Lawson. These relationships have taught me so much about the love of the Lord.
As I grew in my faith, I grew in my service towards my church and to ultimately serving youth in our community as a coach and teacher. In following Christ, I was later called to lead the youth of First Baptist Church of Durant.
I joined First Baptist as a full-time staff member in September of 2015. I am thankful for the way He is growing me in the leadership of our students.
