profile-picLover of Christ, wife, children, and church.  I am a Christian husband and father, pastoring a church just outside of St. Louis.  I am a man who wants to be as Christlike as I can be, and yet I never live up to what I know.

I was born in 1980 in Jacksonville, FL, lived for a short time in Indiana (where I came to faith in ’87) as a child, and then moved to Georgia.  I grew up most of life there, though I have now lived more of my life outside that wonderful place.  I met my wife on the internet (before it was cool) back in 1998, about 6 months after my dad died.  She lived in WI and I in GA.  We saw each other about a total of 6 weeks (though we were engaged for about a year and a half) before getting married.

I’ve pastored churches in Georgia (Toomsboro Baptist), Indiana (Orchard Drive Baptist, Fellowship of Christ–merging with Hillcrest Baptist to become “The Pointe”), and Highland View Baptist where I have pastored since 2014.

My wife and I have 5 kids whom I adore.  I am not the greatest of husbands or dads.  Though I aspire to be.

I am of the reformed persuasion (5 point Calvinist, but baptistic as well).  I follow after the line of Spurgeon.  My favorite pastors/theologians: John Piper, John MacArthur, R. C. Sproul, Charles Spurgeon, Albert Mohler, John Calvin, and those who are similar to these men.

I am always hopeful of feedback, so please be sure to respond/reply to any post.
