I was born in Hickory, North Carolina. We moved a lot as my dad was an air traffic controller. During my elementary years we began attending church at the invite of a neighbor. After entering Jr. High and during a Revival meeting I trusted Christ as my Savior and was baptized. With every move our first priority was to find a church home.

After moving to Ohio and finding a church home (with the only youth ministry and director I ever had) I began to sense God’s call on my life to serve him vocationally. Upon graduation I moved to Houston Texas and began college at Houston Baptist University. I had always had a love and interest in music so I decided to try that and told myself that if I failed miserably that maybe God wanted me to serve him in some other way. After four years of study and numerous opportunities to serve in music ministry God called me to my first full time position in Richwood Texas.

Since the spring of 1987 I have served in various ministry positions including youth and education as well as music ministry. In 2003 I began serving as Minister of Music at First Baptist Church of Durant. My wife Deana and I have been married since 1985 and have two children.
