About Me: I grew up in East Bank, WV. My parents were not Christians, and I knew very little about Jesus. It was not until 1998, when I was 20 years old, that God made Himself known to me. While at Marshall University, I was deeply involved in Baptist Campus Ministry (BCM). BCM is where I learned to have a relationship with Christ. BCM is also where I met my future wife, Olivia. After completing my undergraduate degree, I moved to Wake Forest, NC to attend Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. After graduating in 2005, Olivia and I got married and moved to Charleston, WV to work with BCM at the University of Charleston. In 2008, God brought us back to Huntington to be the state BCM director and to lead BCM at Marshall. Upon returning to Huntington, our family attended First Baptist Church of Kenova. FBCK was in the process of planting a church in Huntington (Marshall Community Fellowship), and we committed one year to help get the church plant started. Almost seven years later, there is no other church that we would rather call home. I came on staff with MCF in September of 2015, and am so excited to see how God will use our church family to reach the ends of the earth with the Gospel of Christ.
