I grew up in Fort Worth, where my parents taught and lived out the Gospel. Having grown up around God's family has provided countless blessings in my life. It provided a challenge as well. As a teenager, I sometimes felt like God was on my side simply because of other Christians spent time with. After being humbled by the greatness of God, I recognized that He desired a personal relationship with me. I couldn't attribute my faith to others; I had to make it my own. I now seek to preach/teach the Word of God in an effort to tell the wonderful story of Jesus. My only goal and aim is to know Him and make Him known to others. Before coming to Center Hill I spent four years as the Student Minister at the Hillcrest Church of Christ in Paragould, and seven years at the Family/Visitation Minister of the Valley View Church of Christ in Jonesboro. I'm married to my best friend, Misti. She teaches me daily about the servant like spirit Jesus portrayed. God has blessed us with two beautiful children that constantly teach us and remind us of how God loves His own children.
