I grew up in Houston, Texas, and moved to Dallas shortly after attending Texas A&M. I accepted Christ as my Savior at a young age, but began seriously walking with Him at Texas A&M. It was during this season that I went to work for Kanakuk Kamps and continued to do so for the next four years. At Kanakuk, the Lord ignited a passion in my heart for how great the Church (not just the parachurch) of Jesus Christ could be, and should be. In 2009, I came to Watermark and was given my first view of “how great” the church could be, it has changed my life, and “ruined” my perspective on Church. Watermark is my first true church home, and so this body has shaped what comes to my mind when I think of the “church”. Alive, authentic, biblical, excellent, innovative, without “politics” or hypocrisy, full of grace and truth, and nothing like what so many in our world seem to think when they hear the word “church”.
Aside from being called servant of Christ, my greatest title is "Calli’s husband". Calli is my wife, ministry partner, and daily example of godly living. She makes me love Jesus and people more. You should get to know her and the God she serves.
I have the privilege of serving in the Young Adults ministry at Watermark. Throughout history, one age group has consistently had incredible influence on the culture and world around it: young adults. We love this age group, and believe it is crucial in its influence, and limitless in its potential impact.
