I have been married to the same amazing woman since 1996 (Monnie). We have 4 children (Lindsey, Ethan, Terah and Lucas) who are the joy of our lives. We also have two dogs (Bo & Alice), a cat named Catticus Finch and an Axlotl to complete our family. I currently serve as the pastor of the Williamstown Baptist Church (SBC) in Williamstown, Kentucky. Kentucky is my home and has been all of my life. I took bachelor’s degrees from both Temple Baptist College and the Northern Kentucky University. I earned the MDiv and the PhD from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. I did my doctoral work in the Billy Graham School of Missions, Evangelism and Church Leadership. The title of my dissertation was “A Rhetorical Analysis of the Preaching of Evangelist Asahel Nettleton During the Second Great Awakening.” I have served as a pastor of local churches since 1996 in a variety of settings. I long to see church life reformed so that the church looks more like the committed, called-out, holy people of God that we see in the book of Acts. My spiritual heroes are men like John MacArthur, Charles Spurgeon, Asahel Nettleton, Billy Graham, Alistair Beig, and Albert Mohler. I enjoy the outdoors and time with my family. I currently teach courses through the Southern Baptist Seminary Extension program and am an adjunct professor for the Northern Kentucky University. I am an avid fan of Kentucky basketball (NKU Norse first, and the UK Wildcats in a close second!). I am also an avid collector of comic books, action figures and all things pop-culture!
