I was saved as a student at a Bailey Smith, "Pointing the Way," Associational Crusade event in Easley, SC, and I was baptized at my home church at East Side Baptist Church in Liberty, SC. I surrendered to God's call to preach in November of 1992 and was ordained to the gospel ministry in October of 2002, also at East Side.
I met my wife, Valerie, at my home church as well and we were married in September of 1999. The Lord has blessed us with three children: Matthew, Michael, and Maegan. We are so humbled and blessed that the Lord has led us here to Blue Ridge View Baptist Church as I began serving as Senior Pastor in July, 2022.
I graduated from North Greenville University in December, 1999 with a Bachelor's degree in Chrstian Studies, and I also graduated from NGU with a Master's degree in Christian Ministry in December 2012.
I love sports and I love to run. I’ve been running now for about 10 years and I’ve completed 14 half-marathons. To me, running is therapy and self-care and, more importantly, quality time with the Lord.
I love our genuine and loving church family here at BRVBC and I know that you will too. Come join us as we "Gather, Grow, and Go" together desiring "God's Word, God's way, for God's glory." I'm telling you, this is a special place on the hill! Worthy is the Lamb!
