I attended Heritage Christian University in Florence, AL, where I received a B.A. in Biblical Studies with emphasis in Youth and Family ministry. While I was in school, I began gaining experience in ministry by working with two small congregations as their part time youth minister. After I graduated, I moved back home to Smyrna, TN where I worked as a youth intern at my home congregation. I began my first full time work soon after the summer ended. It was there that I met my wife and her two kids. We married in August of 2016. She is a wonderful, God fearing woman, who strives to serve the Lord in whatever way possible. She is scripturally allowed to remarry, her ex-husband committed adultery with another woman and left his family. She has two children that I love as if they were my own, Max (13) Macy Kate (10). We also have a baby on the way due at the end of May.
