In the summer of 1992, I was working on an industrial construction site. I was saved through the witness of my supervisor who talked about Jesus every day. I came to understand that I had sinned against God and needed forgiveness. I knew that Jesus had died to pay for all of the bad things I had done, and then he came back to life three days later. I turned to Jesus by faith, asking him to come into my heart and save me. He heard my prayer and changed my life. I was baptized and became a faithful member of a local church. I was called by God to full time vocational ministry in 1999. God led me to become the pastor First Baptist Church North Myrtle Beach in August of 2017.
I married Teri in 1995. We have 2 children, Hannah Grace and Nathan. I am a native of Florence, SC. I pastored in Dillon, SC for over 12 years before being called to FBCNMB.
