I was born and raised by Christian parents in the small west Tennessee town of Martin. I’m a 2005 graduate of the University of Tennessee at Martin with a B.A. in Communications and a 2007 graduate of the Memphis School of Preaching.
I preached my first sermon at the age of 12 and started preaching regularly at the age of 17 for the Christian Chapel Church of Christ (Kenton, TN). Since graduating from MSOP I’ve preached for the Pleasant View Church of Christ (Pleasant View, TN) and since 2010 I’ve preached for the Phillips Street Church of Christ (Dyersburg, TN). Along with preaching at Phillips Street I am involved in preparing video teaching materials for our website (www.phillipsstreetcoc.com) and I direct our annual lectureship each spring.
In addition to my work at Phillips Street I love working with and around our area young people. I organize our area-wide Summer Youth Series and direct a week at Reelfoot Youth Camp (both since 2012).
While at UTM I met Kristy and we married in 2005. Kristy has a degree is Elementary Education and is a licensed school teacher. But right now she stays busy at home caring for our daughters Kenadie (born in 2010) and Charlee (born in 2014).
In my spare time I enjoy running, reading, writing, and University of Tennessee football.
