I was born and raised in Georgia. Our family attended Mount Paran when there was one campus. During my high school years, I moved to Florida where I graduated and played basketball in Jr. College. At the age of twenty, I rededicated my life to Jesus Christ and felt a call to ministry, which led me to Lee University. I completed a Pastoral Ministry degree at Lee and a Master’s of Divinity at the Theological Seminary in Cleveland, TN. I’ve had the privilege to serve in various pastoral ministry roles, leadership positions with Christian non-profits, as well as communications and executive roles within state government. My wife, Monica, and I met at Lee and were married in 1997. We reconnected with North through our five-year involvement with the Canton Campus. We are blessed to have five children, Wes, Susanna, Brigham, Rebekah, and Lydia, as well as one daughter-in-law, Reily.
