About Me

Currently, I am the Pastor of Sonrise Baptist Church in Bonne Terre, Missouri. Previously, I worked in Fredericktown, Missouri, as the Associate Pastor at First Baptist Church. I received my MDiv in 2013 from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. I got my BA in Christian Ministries with an emphasis in Pastoral Studies from Southwest Baptist University. My wife, Heather, and I love the ministry and cannot imagine doing anything else. We have two daughters named Alethea and Karis and a son named Ezra.

While we were in Fort Worth attending SWBTS, Heather and I worked with Hulen Street Baptist Church. I volunteered as a Sunday School teacher for the young married couples. Fort Worth was great but Missouri was always home.

While in college I worked with Springhill Baptist Church as a teaching volunteer in the Youth Ministry.

My Beliefs:

"A mist in the pulpit makes for a fog in the pew." Too true.

I will begin by saying that I am in agreement with the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 (BF&M). This document outlines the general beliefs held by Southern Baptists as a whole. I believe this document to be a great summation of my own beliefs.

I stand in agreement with the Chicago Statement on Biblical Innerancy.

I stand in agreement with the Danvers Statement on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.
