Even though I didn’t appreciate the hard work at the time, growing up on a farm in east Tennessee was a huge blessing! I came to faith in Christ as a child during Vacation Bible School and the older I get, the more I continue to appreciate God’s grace. As a junior in college, when business and technology no longer seemed like a fit for my future, I realized God was calling me into vocational ministry and thereafter headed west to study at Southwestern Seminary. A classic “Green Acres” story, the guy from the farm met his lovely wife who grew up in the big city of Dallas. Katie and I have two boys and we stay busy with their football, basketball and track meets. Before coming to Christ Chapel, I served at churches in South Carolina and Texas. It’s great to head west again to join the Christ Chapel team at the West Campus and see people of Parker County come to know and grow in Christ. In spare time, I enjoy reading, racquetball, camping and meeting the cast of my favorite childhood re-run: The Brady Bunch . . . three down and the rest to go!
