I was born in West Virginia and raised by parents who love God. We moved to Texas in 1989 (yes, I wish I could have gotten here faster) and it's here in DFW that God's love became real to me and I accepted Jesus as Savior. I married the love of my life Heather and started working in the corporate world in 1995. In 2002, while volunteering at The Met Church in Keller, I felt God calling me to full-time ministry. At that time, I left the corporate world to pursue a seminary degree. I graduated from Southwestern Assembly of God University in Waxahachie and began working in student ministry.
In 2009, Heather and I knew God was calling us to a new work. With the support of our sending church, and a core team of 30 people, we launched Marine Creek Community Church (now called The Creek) in March of 2010. It has been a crazy ride since then, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
Heather and I are blessed with two godly and lovely girls, a wonderful son-in-law and an equally wonderful soon to be son-in-law. The one who has captured our hearts, however, is our very sweet new granddaughter. Being a grandparent really is THE BEST THING!
