I grew in Virginia and lived there until college. I attended Milligan College and received a degree in communications. I have spent the last 7 years working in many different areas of ministry. I currently am 34 years old and along with my wife Meg and two children, we reside in the beautiful mountains Elk Park North Carolina. I serve as the senior minister at Elk Park Christian Church and I love helping people find, grow, and develop in their relationship with the Lord. I look forward to meeting you and would love to help in any way I can through any stage in life or faith you are facing.
I grew up in Newland, NC my whole life. I began to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ on May 8th, 2011. In 2013 I married my amazing wife Callie. Callie grew up her whole life at Elk Park Christian Church. Shortly after marriage I became the pastor at Lewis Chapel Church in Minneapolis, NC. After 3 years I felt the Lord begin to urge me another direction in my ministry. So I stepped down as pastor and prayed for God to send me where I could be used, and that is where I am. God is currently using the talents he has given me to help the youth here at Elk Park Christian Church. It is my prayer that I will continually proclaim my savior Jesus Christ and his love to all people.
I am an Avery County native and am continually in awe of the beauty of the mountains. I attended Appalachian State University and received a BS in Business Education and a MA in Instructional Technology. I have spent the last 15 years working in youth ministry in some aspect. I currently advise the FCA/UIC club at Avery High School where I also teach Business. I have two beautiful daughters who light up my life. I serve as Youth Minister at Elk Park Christian Church. I love guiding young people to know and grow in their relationship with Christ. I look forward to growing our youth and seeing the great things the Lord has planned..
