I grew up and spent my childhood years on the west coast in Orange County, California with wonderful Christ following parents and two older sisters. I met Christ at an early age and spent some struggling years through high school searching for significance. A youth pastor began to mentor and come along side me my senior year in High school and I began walking daily with Christ. I attended East Texas Baptist University and Southwestern Seminary and have been working in church ministry since 1990. I have been married to Millie for almost 25 years. Millie works as a Licensed Professional counselor in private practice here in Tyler called Solace Counseling & Anxiety Center. We have twin boys (Luke & Jake) who are 18 years old and two yellow lab dogs. I have served at Grace for 16 years in various positions and now serve as the Old Jacksonville Campus Development Pastor helping oversee everything on the OJ Campus. Grace is a wonderful place to serve and be served by the people in our church.
