I am married to my best friend, Terresa. We have four amazing kids and a golden retriever. I grew up in Williamsburg, played soccer in college at Christopher Newport University and was on Young Life Staff for 18 years. I spend most of my free time outside and love all things in & around the water including fishing, surfing, being on a boat etc. I enjoy time with my family that often includes: great food, reading a good book series in front of the fireplace or building something with wood.
While on Young Life Staff, my specialty was speaking, leadership and creative development. I was honored to build a nationally recognized fishing tournament called the Red Drum Rodeo, along with starting more than 10 new ministries that reach unchurched students. I am a lifelong learner, much of my ministry training was through Young Life and seminary classes that focused on leadership and the life of Jesus.
I am passionate about furthering God's Kingdom through Community Groups, Men's Ministry and RL Serve: family friendly ways to connect and serve within our community. I am so honored to get to serve as the Community Pastor at Real Life!
