I grew up in Little Rock and have been involved in church since I can remember. My family moved to Fellowship Bible Church in the early 80s and I have called Fellowship our church home ever since. I became a believer at a young age but it was not until high school and a major family crisis that I began to truly understand what it meant to be a follower of Christ.
God has been taking me on a journey of faith and trust since college. He used the challenges of that time in my life to deepen my faith in Him and to help me realize that He is in control and I need to trust Him. I tend to think that my way is best and my timing is perfect. However, through this journey, I have grown to trust him more, and to lean into his grace and love to guide and direct me.
My life has become less about me trying to make things happen my way and more about following his lead. His guidance allowed my family the opportunity to be a part of the Fellowship church plant in Memphis. We got to spend four amazing years there watching God bring about unity through diversity. More recently God opened the doors for me to obtain my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling through Denver Seminary.
God has used life’s challenges to shape and influence who I am. He has blessed me immeasurably with my phenomenal wife Amy and three amazing children. He has given me the opportunity to become a full-time Christian counselor in private practice. While I would never have imagined that this is where my life would have ended up, God has used all the events in my life to bring me to a place of coming alongside others to walk through life’s challenges and offer hope through a personal relationship with Jesus.
My hope for Fellowship is that we are a people that live out the Gospel. I pray that lives will be transformed by God’s grace and love. I hope that as a body we will invest in making disciples who live by God’s grace and for His glory.
