Meet the Pastor
I was born in Houston, Texas and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. My religious upbringing was nominal at best. Being Lutheran I went through two years of confirmation but never knew the Lord until I was twenty years old. My life was radically changed for time and eternity by the saving power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I earned my B.A. from Louisiana State University in Shreveport in 1999 and my M.Div. from The Master’s Seminary in 2003. The Lord has graciously seen fit not only to call me to salvation in Christ but to also serve as an undershepherd of Grace Baptist Church. My philosophy of ministry is simple, to preach the truth and love the people. My most oft repeated prayer regarding ministry is that the Lord would enable me to faithfully fulfill what He has called me to do in shepherding the flock and thereby magnify the name of Christ.
In 1997 I married my wife Shelley and we have four children (Ian, Sophia, Aidan and Selah). My deepest prayer for my family is that we would be a distinctively Christian family in which we all worship the triune God rightly, and that our lives would exhibit the grace and compassion of Jesus Christ.
