I was born and raised in Metro Atlanta. I met my wife, Katie, the summer after high school graduation. We were married the following year in July, 2000, and moved to her hometown of Cullman, AL. We began attending Temple Baptist Church in June 2003. We've served in various ministries throughout the church including worship, preschool, guest services and students. Along the way, we have been blessed with two boys, Riley and Ty.

In 2009, as I was leading the student ministry in a volunteer capacity, God changed my ministry direction that would lay the groundwork for my current ministry today. I transitioned from students to Life Groups. In June 2013, I quit my job with Cullman County to step into full-time ministry as the Life Groups Pastor here at Temple. It has been an incredible journey so far and I am looking forward to the Lord leading me to accomplish even greater things for him in the future.

As Life Groups Pastor, God started to stir my heart for church planting. I didn't know the details like when or where, but I knew for certain that something was about to change. I thought I would have to move my family across the country or even the world to follow through on this church planting endeavor. In January 2017, through the providence of God and a very unique partnership, I became the Campus Pastor of the Fairview Campus of Temple Baptist Church.

Senior Leadership Team


After surrendering to the call of the Lord at an early age, I began pastoring after graduating from Victory Baptist Seminary. In 1999, I got the call to come to Temple Baptist Church in Cullman. I have seen God move in a miraculous way over the past 17 years, as we have seen lives change and people come to know Christ.

In my spare time, I enjoy coon hunting and golfing. But above all, my heart for God and love for ministry is my main motivation in life. Tammy and I have been married for more than 23 years and we have four beautiful daughters: Jordan Whisnant, Rebecca, Brandi and Mackenzie as well as a great son-in-law, Austin Whisnant.

I was born and raised on the West Coast, spending most of my childhood and teen years in the Phoenix Metro area. In 1997, I moved to Huntsville, Al, to go to college at the University of Alabama in Huntsville to pursue a degree in Atmospheric Science. That same year, after attending Temple Baptist for several months, I trusted Christ as my savior. For the next several years, I continued to study at UAH, receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry and Math, and then a Master Degree in Atmospheric Science. In early 2005, I felt the call to enter fulltime ministry. Just a few years later in 2007, I started full time at Temple as the Church Administrator. It has been an amazing journey thus far, and God has truly blessed not only Temple, but my family. Nancy and I have been married since 2006, and have three children, Kirsty, Dawson and Preston. In my spare time, I enjoy storm chasing and coaching, but most of all, my motivation in life is to love God and to serve Him in whatever capacity He sees fit.
