I am originally from Fairview, Alabama, but moved to Addison in 1984 where I graduated from Addison High School in 1991. Immediately after graduating, I joined the Army, where I served for 10 years, both nationally and internationally. After the Army, I moved around a lot, but finally made my way back home to Cullman, Alabama in 2007. Shortly after attending, I joined Temple Baptist Church in 2008. I have enjoyed serving in just about every ministry with Temple Baptist Church, and God has even allowed my family and I to work very closely with a ministry, near and dear to my heart, Unsheltered International. Unsheltered International is a ministry to the homeless and forgotten. It has been moving and growing strong since its inception in 2010, and I am grateful to have been a small part of it over the years. In December 2020, I was invited to become the Campus Pastor for Temple Baptist Fairview Campus and without hesitation and on great faith, I climbed out of my semi-truck and into that role. A role that has matured my walk and continues to challenge me daily. I thank God for the opportunity.
I met my wife Adrienne, in 2008, that same year, she was saved and trusted in the Lord to lead her life right here at Temple Baptist Church. Needless to say, we were married shortly after in 2009. In total we have 4 children, Ashley, Michalah, Seth and Elliot. Currently, our youngest son, Elliot, serves on the Sights and Sounds team. My wife, Adrienne, sings in the choir at the Temple Baptist Fairview Location.
I can’t say enough what a privilege it is for us to serve the Lord, as a family, in any capacity. If you have a chance to come out and visit, I’d love to meet you and pray with you!
