I am the Young Adults Pastor at Austin Ridge Bible Church in Austin, TX. This is my personal blog which will explore the various intersections of faith and culture. I’m a Texas boy married to a California girl and we love making Austin our home.
I am an avid baseball fan (huge understatement…Go Rangers!) and my favorite place in the world is our home with our two dogs, Cooper and Zoe. I love the Baylor Bears and great Tex-Mex food.
Before coming to Austin Ridge I served as the Pastor of the Greenwood Campus of Community Bible Church in Fort Smith, Arkansas. I have also served as the Student Pastor at two previous churches, Main Street Baptist Church in Georgetown, TX and Western Heights Baptist Church in Waco, TX.
I received my Masters of Theological Studies from George W. Truett Theological Seminary in 2012. I graduated college from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in 2010 with a degree in Biblical Studies. I’m so glad God brought me to UMHB because that’s where I met my wife, Hayley. We have been married since May 2010 and she is a Family Practice Nurse Practitioner with Premiere Family Physicians.
