Engaging students with the relevance of the Word and the power of the Gospel
I grew up in Nashville,TN where I went on to graduate from Vanderbilt University. I then served as a Naval Officer working alongside the Marines, Special Warfare, and the Coast Guard during my 4 years of service. After the Navy, I studied towards a Masters of Divinity at Beeson Divinity School (Samford University).
In 2003, I began coaching football, basketball, and tennis in the Mountain Brook School System. In 2006, I founded a para-church ministry, Bigtime Ministries, to evangelize and disciple middle school and high school students through bible studies and retreats. I served as the Executive Director from 2006 until 2016. I have also served on staff at churches in TN, VA, and AL. I have also traveled as a speaker for many years serving churches and organizations as a speaker and camp pastor.
My wife, Haley and I have been married almost 2 years and are blessed to be parents of a two month old daughter named Sawyer. When I'm not working or hanging with my family, I spend some time hiking, traveling, watching movies, exploring history, and playing golf.
I'd be honored to come encourage you and your students!
