Hello! As a pastor, I realize that I have a very public persona. Most people know me by my preaching, teaching, or community leadership. But perhaps you don’t know quite so much about me.
I became Pastor of First Baptist Church of Ahoskie in 2006. My responsibilities as pastor include preaching, encouraging spiritual formation, providing pastoral care, and leading our church to discover and engage our God-given mission.
I am a graduate of Georgetown College, Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond, and Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. I came to Ahoskie from the First Baptist Church of Frankfort, Kentucky, where I served as Pastoral Resident, a pilot program funded by the Lilly Foundation and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. I was ordained to the Gospel Ministry by that very fine church.
I am married to Andrea, a Louisville, Kentucky native. Andrea is an Industrial-Organizational psychologist (which basically means she’s much smarter than I am) and is employed by Roanoke-Chowan Community College as Professor of Psychology and director of the Career Readiness Center. We are the proud parents of two daughters, Ella and Ashley, who are the proud owners of a spirited and frisbee-loving Australian Shepherd named Micah. For Sabbath time, I enjoy family activities, searching for the best cup of coffee, channeling my inner chef, and learning photography.
If you have any questions regarding your faith journey, pastoral ministry, our church in general, or if I may pray for you, please do not hesitate to contact me via email or at (252) 332-4003.
