Connections Pastor

Born in humid South Georgia, raised in the mountains of North Georgia, and now working in busy Metro Atlanta, I guess I’m as Georgian as they come!

I was always involved in sports growing up, and was taught to understand the value of hard work.

In high school, God placed in my heart a love for people which continued to grow when I set off for college at Lee University where I earned a degree in Human Development. Now I use both to teach 4th and 5th grade ministry here at North. It is both a joy and an honor to help prepare our students for the next phase of their life (especially the crazy teenage years).

Among the many lessons God has taught me, one that I’ve taken to heart the most is the value of doing rather than saying. I’m often reminded of the man who fell among thieves. His life was changed not when someone said something to him, but when someone did something for him. One of my favorite authors summed up my life and ministry philosophy pretty well: “Love God, love people, and do stuff” — Bob Goff

Reading, hiking, working out, traveling, collecting BobbleHeads. I love most sports but I’m a die hard Atlanta Braves fan.


Wild at Heart, Love Does


I have been to almost every continent, and I’m trying to visit every baseball park in the United States!

“I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the LORD has done.”
