About

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 weekI 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.

My Biography

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.

  1. Hey there!


    My name is Ashleigh and I’m the head of community for Buzzstarter, a San Francisco-based publisher network. You can check us out at: http://partners.buzzstarter.com/


    We have a live campaign, right now, for Unilever’s Best Meals Happen at Home. Our customer, Unilever, specifically requested that we reach out to publishers that we can create long term relationships with, as this campaign lasts until the end of 2015.


    We will send you the piece of content, in this case a recipe, and pay you a flat rate to post. At the same time, we will use social media to drive thousands of visitors to your publication, thereby increasing exposure and fan advocacy to your site.


    Would you be interested? Please let me know.


    Thanks so much,

    Ashleigh
