My wife, Katie, and I live in London, a small town in Southeastern Kentucky, around 38 miles from the Tennessee border off  South I-75.  We thank God for all of the life lessons that we have learned, and for the ministry that we have been able to be a part of together.

My wife and I were married on June 5, 1999 in Prospect, KY.  God gave the pleasure of sharing the gospel with her and leading her into salvation. I have one son, Leighton, born August 29, 2001, he is very active in church with our student ministry as well as in the bands at school. I had the great pleasure of also leading him to the Lord. I have one daughter, Raylee, born March 29, 2016.  I am currently the Student and Worship Pastor at Hart Baptist Church in London, I teach in a local elementary school, I lead a worship band, and I am an author.

I am a graduate of Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, KY.  I received a Bachelor of Music Education degree (2001) and a Master of Music degree (2003). I also hold a Masters degree from The University of the Cumberlands as an Education Specialist in Principal. During my college years I did tend to stray from the right path but it didn’t take long for God to bring me back.

I am the author of the Ella Minnow series. I hope that you will buy my books, I believe both of them have a positive message that kids need to hear today.
