I am a devoted follower of Jesus Christ whom God has gifted to preach, teach, lead, and administrate in the context of the local church. I believe that God has formed in me the desire, abilities, and character necessary to serve Him by leading and shepherding His church. My experience has enabled me to learn and implement biblically sound ministerial skills and strategies that equip church members to reach a lost world and to edify one another in order to attain maturity in Christ. My passion is to faithfully preach and teach the Scriptures and to develop and mentor people through genuine relationships, biblical counseling, spiritual care, and sound education in a way that is faithful to Scripture, glorifying to God, and beneficial to people. I am married to my beautiful and godly wife, Melissa. She is my true friend and partner in life and ministry. We are the proud parents of our sons, Brady and Noah.
What God's Doing Right now
At the present time, God has given me the privilege to shepherd First Baptist Church of Bonham, TX. First Baptist Bonham is a warm and friendly church that boldly and clearly believes, preaches, and lives the gospel of Jesus Christ. We stand for the truth of God's Word and exhibit its transforming power in our lives by the grace of God. We believe that the church that grows is the church goes. Therefore, we are committed to spreading the gospel around our community and our world so that people might find redemption in the Lord Jesus Christ. If you are looking for a healthy, growing, and biblical church, you should join us on Sundays at 10:45am for corporate worship and check out the other ways that God is using First Baptist Bonham and the other means that you could be involved with what God is doing through His people.

In addition to serving as the pastor of First Baptist Bonham, I am a PhD candidate at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. I have completed my seminars and am working towards completing my comprehensive exams so that I may begin the writing stage of my PhD work.
