I’m a proud Okie from the very small town of Bokchito, Oklahoma. I grew up in the church and learned of God’s love and experienced it through the love and care of my family, especially my Grandfather, and a church family that loved us kids really well. Growing up in a small town the value of community is very high.
I attended Oklahoma State University (Go Pokes!) where I studied Accounting and became heavily involved in BYX. I am so thankful for my time in Stillwater because it was the first time I saw a glimpse of what true biblical community could be.
I later moved to Oklahoma City to work in Joint Venture Audit for an oil & gas company. It was here that I became heavily involved at a church with a thriving and growing young adult ministry, joined a community group where I experienced real biblical community for the first time, and met and married my wife, Tiffany. She is truly the most strong, faithful, and caring woman I know.
We loved our community in OKC, but an opportunity for me to jump into the Watermark Institute was too good to pass up. So I quit my job and we moved to Dallas in the middle of a pandemic. And God has been so faithful here and I have fallen more in love with Him and His Church. We have a community group that we deeply love, a daughter, Hadley Kate, who we delight in and whose little life we get the joy of stewarding, and I was given the opportunity to serve on this staff after the Institute. I am still in awe daily that I get to serve this staff and serve this body on a daily basis.
