I graduated from Dallas Baptist University in 2002 and received my masters from Southwestern Seminary in 2005. My wife, Laura, and I came to Oakwood in February of 2007 when I joined the team as the Middle School Pastor. My goal is to intentionally engage middle school students by leading them in environments that help them know God personally, grow in their relationship with Jesus, and challenge them to show the love of Jesus daily. Oakwood is the local Church and I believe the local Church is the hope of the world. My prayer is that God would let His Kingdom come and will be done here in New Bruanfels, to Texas, to the nation, and to the world. I love family time with Laura and our two kids, Katie and Noah. I enjoy camping, snow skiing, action movies, playing music, fly fishing, and basketball.
