I was born and raised in the Glen Burnie, Maryland area. I was born in a Christian home in which God was always a priority and played a large role in our lives. I came to faith at a young age and gradually came to a greater understanding of who Christ is and what He had to do with me. From the time I was a teenager I was very involved in various aspects of ministry from missionary trips, to local evangelism, to Bible study. I was sixteen when I felt God calling me to devote my life to full-time ministry. From that time I have dedicated my life to developing my gifts for ministry through involvement in all kinds of ministry.
I attended Liberty University and received my Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies with a minor in Youth Ministry in 2007. While there I was able to make my calling more sure through involvement in their student leadership program. I was able to learn about what it means to lead my peers and teach the Bible in word and action. While I was attending Liberty I met my wife Katrina. In her I found a great encouragement in life and ministry. She is truly my helper and best friend. We were married March 15, 2008 and now have three wonderful boys and a beautiful daughter together.
After I graduated from Liberty I was hired as Director of Youth Ministry at Grace Point. They helped me through seminary and gave me real-life ministry experience. I attended Reformed Theological Seminary and finished my Master of Divinity in 2012. My time there was challenging and very rewarding as I was able to engage in ministry while I was learning. I was able to put things into practice immediately. Seminary enhanced my ministry and my ministry enhanced my seminary training.
I was ordained as Associate Pastor in 2013 and installed as Pastor in 2015. My philosophy of ministry focuses on obedience to God's Word, faith in the grace of God in Christ, humility in my own abilities, and authenticity in relationships. I love to talk about God's Word and I love to get to know people. Ministry is my calling and my passion.
