God showed me mercy by saving me while I was young and by giving me a family and a church that took my discipleship seriously. Before Christ, I can remember the feelings of despair and not having a purpose; the feeling of knowing there was more. And I can remember the evening when I surrendered my life to Jesus, confessing my belief to Him that He died on the cross and rose again! Even though He hasn’t spared me from heartache and pain, Jesus has over and over proven Himself as the only true source of joy and peace.
When I was in high school and college God provided opportunities for me to serve His church in leading music and bible studies. After graduating from UNC Charlotte, I began ministry as a high school social studies teacher and married my wonderful wife Krystle! After several years in the classroom, I spent four amazing years investing in families as a Student and Kids pastor.
Now, as the Lead Pastor of Provision Church, I’m continually praising God for how He is working in and through our congregation. It’s an honor and blessing to invest my life in a Christ-centered community driven by the joy of the Gospel to make disciples that make disciples.
