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 the staff and faculty of Visible Music College, a music and ministry college with campuses in Memphis, Chicago, Dallas and Central California. I also teach as an adjunct online professor at various other colleges such as Christian Brothers University, LeTourneau University and Tabor College. I’ve had two stints of teaching and ministry work in Europe: the UK from 2003-2006 as Old Testament Lecturer for the Bible College of Wales and Belgium from 2008-2013 as pastor of Cornerstone International Church.
I hold a B.A. in Communications from the University of Memphis, an M.A. in Theological Studies from Covenant Theological Seminary, and two years of work toward a Doctor of Intercultural Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary. I begin my Ph.D. at the University of Aberdeen in February 2020.
My wife, Catherine (Cat), is a beautiful English rose and an artist-photographer. We met in the UK during my 3-year stint there. We have 3 boys, aging from 10 to 3 years 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 2020, also with Wipf & Stock.
