|At the age of 16, I became a follower of Christ and my brother and parents did the same soon after. Growing up as a military brat, I really wanted to fly jets but after my conversion, my greater desire became to help people understand who Christ is and experience Him and His grace the way I had. |
I married my high school sweetheart Pam and after 3 years as a Jr. High pastor in Houston we moved to Dallas to attend seminary. Early in 2000, we walked into a hotel ballroom one Sunday morning where a little church called Watermark was having their 7th service. Our love for the church, people, and God’s Word grew as we jumped in and has continued after I graduated and joined staff.
I love getting to invest in marriages and having a front row seat to all the amazing stories of life change here at Watermark. I’ve never see anyone walk on water or raised from the dead, but I would put many of the incredible marriage-turn around stories I’ve seen here in the same category.
I like college football and eating. If you can grill it, wrap it in bacon, or add cheese to it I am probably a fan. I’ve run a marathon 4 out of the last 5 years more because of my love for food than my love of running. Travel, reading, and new ideas are always interesting to me, but I will take meaningful times with Pam and our 4 kids over other options any day. Those who are close tell me that I am most passionate about my family. I daily feel the weight of the opportunity to intentionally invest in each of our kids for the 18 years we have them.
