Hometown: Evansville, In

Education: Bachelor of Science in Communication Studies from University of Southern Indiana
Master’s of Theological Studies at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

I am married to a wonderful and beautiful wife, Alison. We have 2 daughters (Amelia Grace and Harper Jane) who are 5 years of age and almost 2, a son (Liam James) who is 3. I’m a huge sports fan, loving anything to do with: Indiana University, Chicago Cubs (2016 World Champs), Dallas Cowboys, or Utah Jazz. I also love to play sports, spend time with my family, watch movies, and hanging out with students.

I have been in ministry since 2000, and served the previous 4 years prior to coming to Mount Pleasant at Bethel Baptist Church in North Vernon, IN. I also love studying theology and listening to sermons. Some of my favorite scholars are John Piper, Matt Chandler, Mark Dever, David Platt, JD Greear, Russell Moore, John MacArthur and Tim Keller.

We want to create a student ministry that has a love and passion for the Word more than anything else. As they do that, they will be more concerned about God than themselves. May our lives and our ministries be about what God has done and is doing and less about us. We pray God would be the center of everything we do.

My Life Verse:

For my own sake, for my own sake, I do it, for how should my name be profaned? My glory I will not give to another. Isaiah 48:11
