I was born and raised in Marion, South Carolina. During the years growing up, I attended a local youth group at Marion Baptist Church. It was there that I grew close to my youth pastor and his family. When I was 12, at centrifuge, I surrendered my life to Christ.
For years, I didn’t know what true discipleship was and ran away from serving His kingdom. It wasn’t until I was 21, where I finally started serving the Lord at First Baptist of Florence, SC. I was an early childhood/elementary teacher for 12 years until I felt called into the ministry.
I was a youth volunteer leader at South Florence Baptist Church when I felt the Lord leading me to become a youth pastor. I talked with the senior pastor, Jim Grigg, on Sunday March 13th about my calling. I thought it would take years before I would be in the ministry, but God had other plans. 3 days later on March 16th, the youth pastor, Ryan Willis, told me that his family was leaving the church to serve another church and they wanted me to become the interim pastor.
The Lord led my family and me to the Brook Church in July of 2023. I met my wife when I was playing/coaching a church softball team. We have 4 kids, two boys, and two girls; Adalynn Grace, Lakelynn, River, and Sawyer.
Some of my hobbies include being with family, sports, cooking, and reading. My calling is for students and children and very excited to see how the Lord will you use my family!
