I was introduced to Christ by my parents and as a child I accepted HIM as my Lord and Savior. Upon graduation from High School, I enlisted into the Air Force and later became a Commissioned Officer.  I look back now and realize God used my Air Force career as a catalyst for professional development and spiritual growth.  One of my Air Force assignments moved my family and me to the Montgomery, Alabama area where we joined a local church.  It was during this time I went on a mission trip to the Czech Republic and after returning felt God’s call into the ministry.  In obedience to that call,  in 2005 I was licensed and ordained in the Gospel Ministry and enrolled into seminary.  The Air Force eventually moved us again and I simultaneously performed my military duty and served as the Youth Pastor at Trinity Baptist in Vacaville, California.  Yet another assignment led us to Kleine Brogel, Belgium where there was no full time, English-speaking pastor.  Realizing God had given me another opportunity to minister, I became the Unit Chaplain in addition to being the Deputy Commander.  In 2011 I gave up my combat boots for full-time ministry.  Since retiring from the Air Force, I have served as Associate Pastor at Thelma Baptist Church, Wetumpka, AL and now I have the honor and very great privelage of serving as Pastor to the awesome people of First Baptist Church Reeltown. I have been married to my awesome wife Dawn for 28 years and we have one son, Zach, who is 23 years old and is a recent graduate of Auburn University.

     A funny little fact about me is that Camels give me the creeps.  Just look at them!  They have this weird “I can’t be trusted look about them!”  I love anything to do with the outdoors and agriculture.  I enjoy hunting, fishing, the lake and playing in the dirt.

   The things I treasure the most are God’s grace and the love of my beautiful wife and awesome son. I’m honored to be the Chaplain for the Reeltown Rebels Football Team.  I love the drive of the student athletes and the opportunity to spend time with them and the chance to pour into them.  

My favorite Scripture is:

Revelation 3:8 (NLT)  8 “I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me.

     Take the time in this busy life to know God’s will for you.  How has HE wired you?  What are you good at? What are your Spiritual gifts? What has HE given you a passion to do?  Once you understand these things I believe our lives are a lot more focused .  It’s easier to say “yes” to what’s really important and say “no” to the things that aren’t.
