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.
