Born and raised on James Island, South Carolina, I became a believer in Christ in 1988. The church that presented the Gospel to me was Oakbrook Baptist Church in Summerville, South Carolina.

In 1990 I entered the full-time vocational ministry. The Pastor and leaders of Oakbrook had a major influence on my decision to both trust Jesus as Lord and Savior and the decision to follow Him in full-time Christian service.

In Spring 1990 I was led by God to attend college where I earned a B.A. in Ministry from a Christian college in Kentucky, Clear Creek Baptist Bible College. After graduating in 1994 we moved to Wake Forest, North Carolina where I received a Master of Divinity with languages in 1998 from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

For 20 years I have served in ministry as a senior pastor. This has provided me with the opportunity to serve in churches in South Carolina and in Florida. In May 2019, I accepted the call to serve as senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Clewiston.

I am married to my beautiful bride of 37 years, Peggy. I thank the Lord for Peggy who has served faithfully with me in ministry. We have three children, three grandchildren, a daughter-in-law, and a son-in-law.

Scripture verses that help to give me encouragement and guidance are: Ephesians 3:20 and Romans 8:28
