Biography

Lead Pastor at First Baptist Church of Orange Park and the First Family Network (firstfam.org)

I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ in my fourth grade Sunday School class at Trinity Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. My father was served in the United States Air Force, so I has lived in numerous states. I was born in Paris, Tennessee, but has called Orange Park home since 1994. I attended Texas Wesleyan University for two years where I played on the basketball team. I transferred after my sophomore year and graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of North Texas. I have since earned Masters of Religious Education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Educational Ministry from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I has served on pastoral staff at First since 1994 and as Lead Pastor since 2005. He is married to Tracy and they have two adult children, one son-in-law, an aging poodle and a nervous chihuahua.
