I grew up in Abilene, TX and was baptized at a young age. God has always been a part of my life, but as I grew older I also grew increasingly more serious about God. One thing that was very influential for me was the church camp I would attend each summer as a teenager.
After I graduated from high school, I went to Angelo State where I majored in Computer Science and minored in Psychology. This was both a very challenging and formational time for me. I was exposed to many new ideas and arguments which ended up leading to me learning much more about theology and apologetics.
While in college I began volunteering at church camps and in the student ministry at my local church. I had not yet been called to vocational ministry, but I started falling in love with doing ministry and trying to be as involved in it as I possibly could. The spring before my final year at ASU, I was called to vocational ministry. This was a very strange time for me as my entire life trajectory seemed to be changing, but I eventually surrendered my life to full-time vocational ministry.
After graduating from ASU I went to Southwestern Seminary to get a Master of Divinity degree. I attended for two years in person and then switched to taking classes online so that I could move here to be the Student Pastor of this church. My goal in this role is to help students love and trust God and find their joy in Him while they live their lives for His glory and for the good of those made in His image.
