Husband of one, father of two, follower of Jesus, adventurer, alien. That's me in a nutshell. I am also a local pastor and have been in vocational ministry since 2005 in some form or fashion. God has given me a love for preaching and teaching, and that is how He has chosen to use me in the Body of Christ - to "equip the saints for works of service (Eph. 4:12)."

Of all the descriptive words I used above the one that may have stuck out to you is "alien." Yes, I consider myself an alien. Throughout the Bible God reminds His people that they are sojourners, strangers, and aliens in a foreign land. For the Christian we must remember that our real citizenship is in heaven (Phil. 3:20). So, in that case, I hope that what you find here will be good "civics" lessons for your true nationality.

In light of the fact that I am claiming to be a teacher, you may be wondering what kind of qualifications I have for that. Now, please don't misunderstand me on this point. Degrees on the wall do not qualify someone to be a teacher in God's economy, history has proven that over and over again. Peter and most of the other disciples were just regular guys without great academic qualifications. Yet, God used them to change the world, and He inspired them to record His word in written form. So please don't think I'm on some kind of ego trip or that I believe you have to go to school to be used by God. However, God also used Paul and he was highly educated. I do believe that education is valuable though, and it continues to serve me well as I attempt to share what I've learned with God's people. All that being said, here's my "credentials."

B.S European History - Western Carolina University
M.Div. - Hood Theological Seminary
Th.M Church History - Liberty University (anticipated completion 8/2018)

Now that that's out of the way we won't have to talk about it anymore! If you're interested in my beliefs on specific doctrines please see my Statement of Faith.
