God blessed me with Christian parents who taught me the importance of a loving relationship with Jesus and faithful ministry in the local church. At the age of seven, I was led to the Lord by my dad in our living room.
Of all places, I met my wife, Kloette, at a single’s conference in Glorieta, New Mexico. We were married in December of 1985. God has blessed me with a wife who has a heart for the gospel. We have two grown sons, Ryan and Josh. Ryan and his wife, Jessika, have one daughter, Averi. Ryan serves as the FBC student pastor. Josh and his wife, Kathryn, live in Pflugerville, Texas.
In May of 1986, I graduated from West Texas State University with a BBA in Accounting. In the fall of that same year, we moved to Fort Worth, and I enrolled in Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. I earned my Master of Religious Education degree in 1986 and my Doctor of Ministry degree in 2001.
After serving in churches in Fort Worth, Shreveport, Canyon, and Wheeler, God called me to serve as pastor of FBC of Clyde in 2003.
