I was born in Arlington, TX on February 25, 1974. I was brought up in a Christian home in Mansfield TX. and I am the youngest of six kids. I cherish the memories of my childhood. I grew up in South Center Baptist Church in Arlington TX and at the age of 20 joined Pleasantview Baptist Church under Pastor DL Moody. While attending Pleasantview, I surrendered to full time ministry and attended Arlington Baptist College. I graduated Arlington Baptist College in 1997. While attending college I served as Youth Pastor at Pleasantview.
In February 1998 the Lord called me to the West Orlando Baptist Church as Youth Pastor. I served as Youth Pastor for 7 years and then Associate Pastor for 2 years. Then I began to feel the Lord calling me to Pastor and sought a pastorate position. In 2006, the Lord called me to Vandalia Baptist Temple, in Vandalia OH where I served for 6 months. During this time the Lord did a great work in my life. In February of 2007, the Lord called me back to West Orlando Baptist Church to serve as Pastor. I have served as Pastor since February 2007 and the Lord has truly blessed this ministry.
I have been married to Ella since July 10, 1993. We have three beautiful girls: Naomi, Maddison and Camri.
I was born in Big Spring, TX on March 28, 1984. I was raised there in Trinity Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Claude Craven and later Pastor Randy Cotton. I was fortunate to have been raised in church, and I accepted Christ as my Savior at the age of 10. I did not surrender to the ministry until I was a Junior at Texas A&M University where I was working on a secular degree. Upon graduation, I immediately went to seminary at Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO where I earned my Masters degree.
Proceeding my graduation from seminary, I had the honor of serving as Music Minister for Berean Baptist Church in Albuquerque, NM. While serving there, the Spirit began to stir my heart again. With the Lord’s leading, it was confirmed in my heart to join WOBC as Music Minister.
My wife, Lilly, has been by my side and faithfully serving with me since June of 2007. We have been blessed with two wonderful children, Brooklyn and Hudson.
I was born October 2, 1973 in Orlando, FL and spent my entire life in the central Florida area. It wasn’t until 1999 at the age of 26 that I came to know the Lord as my Savior. After several years of spiritual growth the Lord began to use me to serve in the church; first as a helper in Sunday school and then in AWANA. Through this time of service the Lord continued to prepare me for His calling on my life, youth ministry. In 2006, God burdened me for teenagers and presented an opportunity for me to serve as a helper in the youth department here at WOBC. As I continued to serve in this ministry God continued to open doors and increased my burden for youth ministry. After several years serving as a lay worker God began to deal with me about full time youth service. Finally, in the fall of 2009 I surrendered to His call on my life for full time youth ministry. In December of 2009 I came on staff as Youth Minister.
The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful godly wife that faithfully serves alongside me in ministering to the youth of West Orlando. The Lord has blessed Janet and me with two girls: Kyla and Kara.
