I mowed lawns growing up, but the first job I was ever paid for was working the grounds crew for Snowden Grove in Southaven, MS, which at least at the time was the nation’s biggest little league baseball park.
I love the moments we get to see it “click” with students, whether it’s them realizing a truth about Jesus or even the moment they actually experience salvation. No matter where on the “importance” spectrum, I love seeing students grow in their knowledge, understanding, and experience of Jesus.

My wife Emma and I have two girls, Maisy and Betsy. With little girls, we’re all about family tea parties, dance parties, doll houses, and sidewalk chalk. When I get some downtime after everyone is asleep, I also love playing video games.
Cheesecake. Or Reese’s Cups. …but rarely Reese’s Cheesecake.
I grew up in a church in Edmond, OK and my mom was on staff. Anytime the church was doing something, we were there. When I was in elementary school, I started asking questions about Jesus and eventually gave my life to HIm. That being said, High School was when I made my faith my own, thanks to an incredible student ministry in Olive Branch, MS. Thanks to my parents who love Jesus and wanted the same for me, I would say I experienced saving faith at a young age, but it wasn’t until I was a teenager that it began to take root and grow.
I used to work at a hot dog cart in town.
