My faith journey:
I felt Christ's calling at the age of 14 and have been on a ragamuffin journey of grace ever since. Along that journey, God has constantly blessed me with strong, Godly mentors to help me navigate along the path of righteousness. His sovereignty and grace have continually served as lanterns in this darkened world, steering me away from danger and into the arms of His love.
In 2001, God blessed me with a beautiful, talented, and loving wife, Cassi. Together, we have two incredible sons, Grant and Jackson.
Passions for the Kingdom of God:
Being mentored as a child drove me to spend 10 years serving as a Christian School Bible teacher, chaplain, youth pastor, and coach before taking my current job serving in global orphan care and connecting churches to God's call to love and defend the orphan. At the root of my journey is the gospel understanding that I am called to love others because He first loved me.
Places I've lived:
Virginia, Georgia, West Virginia, and Florida
In my free time, I love to:
Travel with my family, attend my sons' sporting events, gather with friends, and explore all there is to do at Disney World.
