As I write my life's testimony, I see once again how truly blessed I am; the privilege of
growing up in America, a wonderful Christian family, and by the grace of God I accepted
Jesus as my saviour at a young age. At the age of twelve, God began confirming in my
heart His call to the ministry. I was not vocal about it and did not announce it publicly until I
graduated high-school in 1987. I attended Hyles-Anderson Bible College and graduated in
1992 with a Bachelor of Science in Pastoral Theology. In June of that year I began dating
my wife Tammy, and a year later we were married.
In 1994 we moved to Alabama where I served as a youth director, bus director and other
various jobs. My oldest child, John, was born while there and he still loves Alabama. While
in Alabama, God began working in my heart about being a Pastor. Later we moved to
Florida where my daughter was born and then back to Indiana where I had attended Bible
College. In 1999, we had prayed and fasted earnestly about the place of God's choosing
for us. I was born in Tennessee and love it but resigned to the fact that God wanted me
elsewhere. I was thrilled and excited when God made His will very definite and obvious to
come to the greater Nashville area and start a Church. We moved in September of 1999 to
the Lavergne-Smyrna area not knowing anyone, but having the peace of God in our hearts.
I have been honored and privileged to be the Pastor of Rutherford County Baptist Church
since its conception and to see God grow His work. It is exciting to watch God work in the
hearts and lives of the people I love. I am thrilled to see what God has in store in the future
of His Church as we seek to serve the Lord and the people of the Middle Tennessee area.
Thank you for taking the time to look over our web-site. I look forward to meeting you and
having the privilege of serving you at Rutherford County Baptist Church.
