Born and raised in Lexington, I attended the University of Kentucky. At UK, I earned an undergraduate degree in Secondary Math Education and Masters in Education. During those years I was heavily involved with UK’s Baptist Campus Ministries where I met my wife, Melissa, to whom I have now been married since 2002. After initially teaching at Dunbar HS for a couple years after college, we moved to Louisville so that I could pursue an MDiv in Biblical Studies at Southern Seminary.
Since 2006, I have been in full-time ministry off and on, serving in various roles including: student pastor, administrative pastor, senior pastor, and interim pastor. We returned to northern Kentucky in August 2017 when we accepted the position to join Erlanger Baptist Church.
Melissa and I have five kids, ranging from high school to elementary: Joshua, Lauren, Jacob. Lily, and Joseph. I love my family and our church and I'm excited about God's ministry through our faith family as we look to the future together.
