Being a preacher’s kid I’ve been in church my whole life. When I was 8 years old I was sitting in a revival service and as the evangelist preached, the Holy Spirit was convicting me of my sin and my need to be saved. I went home that night and my father led me through the plan of salvation. I accepted Jesus into my life and followed Him in believer’s baptism.

At the age of 16, while at a Bailey Smith Real Evangelism Conference, I sensed that God was calling me into the ministry. After earning my bachelors from Tennessee Tech, I received a Master’s in Religious Education from Covington Theological Seminary. In 2007 I began pulpit supply and interim pastor work. While I’ve always enjoyed pulpit supply and interim work, God was calling me to become the pastor at Bangham Heights. It is such a blessing and privilege to be the shepherd for BHBC.
