For a time I trekked alongside friends with developmental disabilities as the Executive Director of Developmental Disabilities Ministries (DDM). I now serve as a Development Office for Mercer University, relating with McAfee School of Theology and Penfield College. Most every Sunday I am blessed with opportunities to preach and teach about God’s magnanimous love for each and everyone of us with the good people of First Baptist Monroe, where I serve as their Teaching Pastor.
Many people and places have helped shape me, but none more importantly than my own family. Amy and I married on a hot July afternoon in Milledgeville in 1988. We have moved from college in Rome, to seminarians in Louisville, KY, to parsonages and homes, currently tugging along two wonderful sons, Clark and Aaron.
When I am not behind the pulpit or about the work of Mercer, I am grateful for quiet evenings at home. I enjoy oil painting, a talent cultivated by patient teachers and friends. As a family we love the outdoors and so when time permits we can be found pitching a tent in the Appalachian Mountains and breathing in campfire smoke.
