My desire is to see the church be the family of God—making disciples in everyday life that leads to a fuller expression of God's Kingdom and the multiplication of His church. I received an MDiv from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2005. After serving as a pastor in churches in Kentucky, Georgia, and South Carolina, my wife, Robin, and I felt led to move our family to Cumming, Georgia to plant Redemption City Church in 2013. In 2016, the Spirit led us to merge with The Gathering, another local church plant, and unite as Soma North Georgia. Robin and I have four kids, Isaac, Morgan, Silas, and Lydia is due in December 2016
As a pastor, my greatest desire is to raise up disciples and leaders who will then raise up more disciples and leaders. My dream is to see churches planted all throughout the Appalachian Mountains region. I am married to Gena—the most amazing wife God could have ever put with me. Together we have a princess named Lucy and a super hero named Timothy, who has the heart of a lion. We are expecting another child in January 2017. In my free time I enjoy fly fishing, mountains, and reading.
