I was born and raised in Arizona. I attended college at Southwestern Bible College (now Arizona Christian University) in Phoenix, received my BS degree in Elementary Education and while there, met and married the most amazing woman, my wife, Christy. We have been married for 23 years and have seven beautiful children, Camden, age 20 (currently serving in the US Air Force), Payton, age 15, Maylee Grace, age 13, Levi, age 10, Endale, age 9, LillyAnn, age 9 and Glory Kate, age 4.
I love to play and watch sports. I am a huge fan of the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Diamondbacks as well as Arizona Coyotes.
I have been in full time ministry since 1997 – the Junior High Youth Pastor at Palmcroft Baptist Church in Phoenix, the Student Ministries/Education Pastor at First Baptist Church of Rio Rancho, and for the last 11 years, the Lead Pastor/Church Planter at Paragon Church in Rio Rancho.
