I was born and raised in Memphis, TN. The bluff city is my hometown. I encountered Christ through a life-altering, new birth conversion in January 1997.
I serve on staff at Visible Music College, a music and ministry college with campuses in Memphis, Chicago, Dallas, and Germany. I also spent eight and a half years involved with ministry work in Europe: In the UK from 2003-2006 as Professor of Old Testament for Trinity School of Ministry and in Belgium from 2008-2013 as pastor of Cornerstone International Church.
I hold a B.A. in Communications from the University of Memphis and an M.A. in Theological Studies from Covenant Theological Seminary. I’m currently working on a Doctor of Intercultural Studies/Missiology from Fuller Theological Seminary.
My wife, Catherine (Cat), is a beautiful English rose. She’s an artist-photographer at heart. We met in the UK during my 3-year stint there. We have 3 boys, aging from 8 to 1 year old.
My book, Change for the First Time, Again, was released in September 2016 under Wipf & Stock’s imprint, Resource Publications. My newest work, Reflections of Immanuel, is planned for release in the Fall of 2019, also with Wipf & Stock.
