I grew up just down the road in Fort Worth, Texas. I accepted Christ at an early age, but struggled to place Him as the highest priority in my life. During my time playing football at Purdue University, the Lord helped refocus my eyes on Him by stripping me of my idolization of the game through as series of multiple injuries.
Over the past twelve years I have been pursuing my passion of walking alongside people as they refine who they are in Christ, and seeing them take the steps to establish their purpose in life. I have been blessed to work in many different areas of Kanakuk Ministries from K-2, After Dark, St. Pete K-Life and Kanakuk Link Year.
Throughout my time in ministry, I didn’t know if I’d get the opportunity to work in the local church. However, when you give the Lord control of your life, He tends to take you places that you never dreamed of. At Watermark, I am blessed with the opportunity to connect with people and walk alongside them as they take their next steps in their walk with Christ.
I am married to my beautiful wife, Autumn. She was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida. Selfishly, I’m grateful that I married a Florida girl, as every holiday with her is a trip to the beach. We were married in the rain in 2012, and have since been blessed with two beautiful girls to make us a family of four.
