I surrendered to Christ in the summer of 1998 while in high school. Three years later, I was asked to join the student ministry staff at FBC Frisco, and my wife and I opened our home to become foster parents. While serving in student ministry, we co-founded Embrace Texas in 2007, and for the next ten years equipped churches to care for orphans (James 1:27). In Fall 2017, I joined the Watermark staff to continue the mission of restoring life and well-being for every child and their family.
I grew up in Frisco, and my wife, Denise, and I have been married since 2000. We have 9 children, five are adopted, and 3 grandchildren. We are both graduates of the University of North Texas, and proud Native Texans! If you need to reach me, I can be found at home playing with my children, eating Tex-Mex at Chuy’s, or camping at Inks Lake State Park.
