I was born in Shreveport, LA. During my undergraduate years, I served as a youth ministry intern at First Baptist Church Pineville, LA. Before working on my master’s degree, I taught high school Spanish, and I spent a year in Spain teaching English. I married my wife Kimberly in 2008, and we spent the last few years living in New Orleans while I worked on my master’s and PhD. I was licensed to the Gospel ministry by Woodridge Baptist Church in Shreveport, LA in 2018. I have came to BPC during the Summer of 2020.
