Born in the small town of Sandersville, Georgia, I grew up in nearby (and slightly larger) Macon.
I enjoyed the blessing of being raised in a Christian home, educated at a Christian school, and attending a strong Christ centered church. He received a B.A. from Mercer University in 1987 and a Master’s Degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1997. On October 26, 1991, I married my sweetheart, the former Andrea Johnson. God blessed Andrea and me with a daughter named Rebekah and a cat named Rahab.
I began in ministry serving various churches as in youth and music ministries, but God called me to pastor and in 1986, Since that time, I have pastored Cooperville Baptist Church (Coopers, GA), Cadwell (GA) Baptist Church, Pointe South Community Church (Riverdale, GA), First Baptist Church of Hoschton, Georgia, First Baptist Church of Ty Ty, Georgia, and now Bellevue Baptist in Macon, Georgia.
I love to write, read, and surf the internet, and I am a big-time sports fan – Braves, Falcons, and Jackets. I love music – everything from classical to R&B, from country to rock and everything in between.
