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 were 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 and we committed one year to help get the church plant started. Several years later, there is no other church that we would rather call home. I came on staff with HCC 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.

About me: I have been raised with strong family values, which I have been able to pass down to my children and  grandchildren. This sense of family flows over into my church family, where relationships and discipling are very important to me. I am retired now from more than 30 years in the workforce. I now have more time for others, especially for my wife of almost 40 years Nancy!

Favorite Movie: It's a Wonderful Life


About me: I originally came to First Baptist Kenova in 1998, and since that time, have served in many roles, including Lead Pastor, with a focus on Sunday morning worship, church leadership, and outreach ministries. In 2007 I began sensing a need in Huntington for a church dedicated to reaching the families and students who live near the Marshall University Campus and soon MCF was born out of that vision.  For the first year of MCF I taught during the morning services then drove back to Kenova in time to teach at its morning worship service. As MCF grew significantly, the need for a full-time minister at MCF became greater and greater.  We soon called Glenn Larue to become the primary teacher for MCF while I focused on a growing campus at Kenova.

Upon Glenn's departure, it became clear to us that one of our founding members, Adam Goodwin, was the man God had chosen to join Kenova's staff full-time and focus his attention to the leadership and development of HCC.  Today, though I focus primarily on FBC's ministries at Kenova and our new Ashland campus, I continue to walk alongside Adam and the other HCC leaders as they guide that congregation to a deeper relationship with Christ and a greater heart for the community surrounding the Marshall campus.

About me: I grew up in Milton, WV in an incredible Christian home, but it wasn't until my freshman year of college that I believe the gospel started to truly impact my life. Once Jesus changed me in 2011, He gave me a passion for His Word and His Church. Throughout my college years, I was heavily involved in my local church where I was discipled by a man named Joey Stevens. Joey leveraged all of his time to teach me how to follow Jesus, study the Bible, and serve people. After graduating from Marshall University, I had the opportunity to work at my local church doing youth ministry for 3 years. In 2016, I married Courtney Kramer. A year later, we knew the Lord was calling us to Huntington, WV to join staff at HCC. We can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for this incredible church family.

We both came to Huntington for school, but this church and its fellowship has helped to make it our home. My day job is as an Academic Counselor and adjunct professor at Marshall, but I enjoy doing Videography for Marshall sports and spending time with my family.
