While attending the First Baptist Church of White Settlement, God called me to serve as a Minister. Shortly after enrolling at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, I was called to serve at Victory Baptist Church and Minister of Music and Youth Sunday school teacher. After graduating from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, God called us to North Henry Baptist Church in Stockbridge, Georgia. The time we spent at North Henry was a wonderful time of growth for the entire family. I was blessed to opportunities to preach on many occasions. We were called away from North Henry back to the Fort Worth area to pursue an MDIV in preparation to pastor. I served at FBC Flower Mound full time while going to seminary. After three years in Flower Mound I was asked to send my resume to FBC Mason. Though school was not quite done we felt led to pastor FBC Mason. We have experienced a wonderful time of growth in our church during the past 5 years. Through it all, God has shown me the importance of ministering to the needs of people, being a servant, witnessing regularly, and edifying the body of Christ. My wife, Lisa, joins me in full support as we accept the ministry that God has in store for our family.
