I am a graduate of Southeastern State University (B.A.); The Criswell College (B.A.); and Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary (M.A.). I have served in ministry positions since 1977 including the pastor of Grace Place since 1992.
My wife Mellanie and I were high school sweethearts and we married in 1977. We have three children: Michael, Rachael, and Charity. Michael is married to Amy and Charity is married to Josiah. We have five grandchildren.
I love the outdoors and have a variety of interests including hunting and golf. I greatly value time with my family.
I am a pastor/teacher. I love God’s Word and have every confidence in its reliability and its ability. I am passionate about helping others enter into a relationship with Jesus Christ and I am passionate about helping them become fully yielded to the Lordship of Jesus and fully devoted to following Jesus. Nothing brings me greater joy than a transformed life!
