About Me

gdc2018-600x600Thanks for stopping by. Let’s see . . . what might you want to know about me? I’m a pastor, counselor, and freelance writer. I write about a variety of things, but usually it’s on topics related to marriage, family, leadership, and culture. I’ve been married to my wife Michelle for over 22 years. She truly is an amazing part of my life. I also have two incredible kids, a son and a daughter, who know how to turn even the most boring of days into an adventure.

I am a big believer in higher education. I hold a Doctor of Educational Ministry, a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Counseling, a Master of Arts in Religious Education, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. My deepest passion is seeing people better know God. I’m a committed follower of Christ who seeks to lead as a servant, by example. I truly believe that one person CAN make a difference in life! In addition to my ministry training, I am also a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing piano, writing, photography, and select sports — especially the Ole Miss Rebels. I’ve actually been fascinated with news and politics since I was just a kid. I definitely consider myself an activist of sorts, keeping in frequent contact with elected officials.
