About pastorleap

I have been married to the same wonderful woman since 1996 (my wife Monnie!). Currently, we have 4 children (Lindsey, Ethan, Terah and Lucas) whom we home-school and adore. Two dogs (Bo & Alice), a cat named Catticus Finch and an Axlotl complete our family. I currently pastor the Williamstown Baptist Church in Williamstown, Kentucky. Kentucky is my home and has been all of my life. I have my M.Div. and PhD from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. I did my doctoral work in the 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 for over 20 years (as of July 2017!) 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 am also an avid collector of comic books, action figures and all things pop-culture! Visit my personal blog at and follow me on Twitter @drterryleap
