The Guy Up Front
I graduated HHS at the top of the middle of my class in 1996 and went on to college where I studied business for 2 impressive years. I later joined the USAF and served for 5yrs, just 15 years shy of retirement. I married the woman of my dreams in 1999 and quickly became an ok husband. We have two children, Jhade 14 (amazing and beautiful beyond words) and Javin 11 (amazing and beautiful beyond words).
My life has always been good and I had the most amazing upbringing anyone could ever ask for, but it wasn’t until 1999 that my life went from good to great. In 1999 I accepted the gift of Jesus Christ and my life was forever changed.
I was called into the ministry in 2002, and coming from someone that has always been “average” it seemed very unlikely God would want to use someone like me. God has taken me on a journey, ministring to many people that needed Christ through someone like me.
The gospel is supposed to be LIVED through REAL people in a REAL way and fortunately I can’t do anything but this. I have seen thousands come to a better understand our loving and gracious God because of his plan and willingness to use someone like me. You are special and God has a plan for you!!
I’m an Indiana native that recently returned from a life-changing two year stint in Texas where I met my wife Crys and discovered my God-given purpose in life. Worship. I’m a quiet guy that loves people even though I’m not always the best conversationalist. I cry at just about any movie I watch and I love to hear people’s stories of what God is doing in their lives.
I grew up in this area and went to high school in Centerville but don’t judge me too quickly… I was never involved in sports and thus avoided the whole Centerville vs. Hagerstown charade. I was the section leader for the drumline which is where I discovered and truly focused on my love for music. I all but abandoned my love for music until 2011 when I went through a set of extreme life changes which introduced me to the Amazing love of my Daddy. He led me to move to Texas where I would discover my identity, my calling and my purpose.
In addition to leading the worship team at the church I’m also one of the leaders of Freedom Ministry, the ministry God brought Crys and I here to administer.
