I am a husband, a pastor, a writer, a speaker, and a consultant.
I was born and raised in Pensacola, FL. At Samford University in Birmingham, AL I studied religion and church health. During my four years there, I connected with a church plant called Celebration Church, where I served as Associate and Youth Pastor. I have also served on Church staffs as a youth minister at Christ Our Shepherd Lutheran Church (ELCA) in Peachtree City, Ga and Clairmont Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) in Atlanta, Ga.
Since moving to Atlanta, I’ve earned my M.Div in Christian Social Ethics from Mercer University’s McAfee School of Theology; and currently work as a staff researcher at Mercer University's Center for Theology and Public Life.
I have partnered with various churches as a growth and general health consultant. I serve as a member of the advisory board for my friends at WORDWALK Inc., as well as speak at youth events, coach other ministers, and lead conversations on youth and family ministry, Christian ethics, Ecclesiastic/Cultural Issues, church planting, and congregational sustainability.
