I've been married to my college crush for 19 years. We have four boys each named after the two most influential books in my life: the Bible and comic books! Each kiddo has a Bible character name and a superhero name.
I am the Teaching Pastor of Cross-Work Church. God called me to ministry at 19 and after a week of ignoring, rationalizing and wrestling with God, I finally submitted to Him. I have spent the rest of my life trying to just be obedient. Honestly, that's how we ended up planting a church in rural Texas!
I love my town and I love the Gospel. I believe we have lots of good folks in my small town who are missing the Gospel. They may be nice and moral people, but without the Gospel, they are lost. It is my calling to do my best to bring the gospel to people in my town. Once we figure out how to do it here, then my dream is to do the same in the small towns down the road.
I grew up in Lubbock, Texas, and I am twenty-five years old. I live with my awesome dog, Coco, in Tahoka. I am currently working on a degree in Christian Ministry, and God has been using me to do different ministries that I never thought I would be involved in.
If someone were to ask me in high school what I would be doing at twenty-five years old, I would have never thought planting a church in Tahoka, Texas would be the answer. However, I am incredibly grateful to be a part of this church family! My desire is to glorify God by making disciples and by reaching people far from God. Ultimately I would like go to a country that is currently not being reached by the gospel, specifically Japan. Until then, my job is to be a sender. While I am in Tahoka I plan to tell people about the need for Christians in other countries and help those same people get there, so if you're talking to me, beware...
I am a native of West Texas and have lived here all my life. I am father to two of the loveliest girls on the planet and have been married to my amazing wife for over 27 years. I have been a disciple of Christ since middle school and find great joy in Him and His kingdom work.
Over the past 18 months, I have been going through the process of becoming an ordained elder for Cross-Work Church. God has blessed me with the opportunity to serve His kingdom with my best friends and I look forward to seeing what God is going to do for our church and community.
