I am first and foremost a Christ follower, not far behind that,
I am a Husband to Kim and Father to George, Jordan and Madeline.
I am a Certified Candidate in the ordination process of The
United Methodist Church to become an Elder. I am currently appointed as a Licensed Local Pastor to Lake Cities
UMC. I serve as the Associate Pastor/youth pastor, and have just graduated from Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University with a Masters of Divinity.
**Have been appointed as the Pastor of Blue Mound United Methodist Church in Denton, Texas beginning on July 1st of 2017**
My goal is to create insightful, relevant content that you can
put to work in your personal and professional life. I create digital ministry content in order to make educated ministry more accessible, by leveraging my seminary training and local church experience with digital tools. Specifically, I target people who do not have access to seminary trained pastors and have grown a worldwide ministry effort. In coordination with this website, my digital ministry efforts include a Facebook Page, Youtube Channel, Instagram, and twitter (the twitter isn't personally branded).
I try to post three times
a week. I am currently
taking a break from regular posting in order to focus my attention on
my family and personal renewal after four long years of seminary. I will be making occasional posts in the meantime
and trying to edit/update old posts.
To make sure you don’t miss my newest posts,
you can subscribe via e-mail. Blogging (all my digital efforts really) takes time, some simple ways that you can encourage me: you can share posts you
find interesting, comment on posts, or you can choose to support my efforts financially through Patreon.com.
I was raised in a single parent home in Arlington Texas. I
started my first business at the age of 8 years old and have always had a very
entrepreneurial mind. I was often considered a trouble maker until after I
embraced a relationship with God, it changed my life in a very real way. In
High School I was a distance runner and I aspire to get back to running.
I graduated from McMurry University in Abilene with a major in
Business Administration with a minor in religion. I met my wife Kim while at
McMurry and we got married a week after I graduated. Upon graduation, I was
recognized as the Outstanding Graduate of the class of 2009.
I have worked in full time ministry for 8 years and served in
part time/volunteer capacity for several years before that.
My wife and I were married in 2009 and have three children (2 boys and 1 girl). In May of 2017 I graduated with a Masters of Divinity from Perkins School of Theology at SMU.
In my free time, I enjoy
golf, photography/videography, talking with friends and family, and Writing.
