From time to time, I get the chance to preach at the church where I serve as the Minister to Young Adults - First Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama. Most of what I will preach going forward will be things that I work out here on the blog & podcast. So click below to find some of the previous work I've done, or the "finished product" of some content you may have come across on here!

About Me

I have lived in Huntsville, AL since September of 2016 serving as the Minister to Young Adults at First Baptist Church. Before moving to Huntsville, I lived and served in Chattanooga, TN for 11 years and Birmingham, AL for 4 years.

Prior to ministry, I was born and raised in Northern Virginia and I still hold a deep love for that region (and my 2019 World Champion Washington Nationals!). I hold ministry degrees from Carson-Newman College (now University) and Beeson Divinity School and am currently in pursuit of a Doctorate in Ministry.


My wife, Emily, and I have been married since 2002 and together we are the proud parents of 2 beautiful daughters, a spunky dog, and a just okay cat.
