My Passion

Next to being a husband to my wife and a father to my children, using my God-given gifts and talents to advance the Kingdom of God is the greatest honor of my life.

Professional Experience

I have served as a vice president of advancement for six years in higher education. I have also had the honor of serving the local church as a campus pastor, executive team member, as well as lead pastor. In addition, I have also served on the executive board of trustees at the university level.

I have been married to my wife and best friend, Michele, since 2001.  We have two children; our daughter, Corey, and our son, Jace.

Favorite Scripture

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Whether it is lifting weights, cycling, playing golf, or simply taking an evening walk with my family, I love doing anything active.

What do you like most about working at TKU?

TKU has the best faculty, staff and students you can ever imagine. Working with them and doing life with them is one of my greatest joys and honors in life.
