I am honored and humbled at the opportunity of being pastor of Georgetown Baptist Church. My family moved to Pottsboro in March 2008. We are so blessed to be part of a great community and an amazing family of faith. I grew up in Kentucky. In 1984 I came to Texas to attend seminary and never made it back to my homeland. My favorite things to do are to spend time with my family, mow, landscape and watch Kentucky Wildcat basketball. I became a believer at the age of seven. Growing into the image of Christ is my goal. Some days I do better than others, but I am captivated by the thought that God loves me and gave Himself to die for me. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)
I am humbled and honored to be able to minister to students here at Georgetown. I have a passion for students to grow and develop a lifelong relationship with Jesus as their Lord and Savior. God called me into the ministry at 16 and specifically to youth ministry not long after that. After high school, God allowed me to pursue my calling to the ministry at Dallas Baptist University where I received a Bachelors in Biblical Studies. My wife, Erica, and I have been married since January 2013, and our son, Easton, was born in September 2017. In my spare time I am an avid sports fan and outdoorsman, and I especially enjoy fishing and baseball.
I have been the Pastor's administrative assistant since 2012. I normally work Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 am to around noon. However, please feel free to contact me at anytime; I am always happy to assist anyone. I have been a member of Georgetown Baptist since 1996. I love the youth and am involved in that ministry. I have taught junior high Sunday School and am currently teaching high school girls Sunday School. I love going to camp and cooking for them because it gives me a chance to get to know each of them personally. I "retired" from TI in 2009 and took up quilting, which is what I do when I am not at church. I also love to read and always have a book with me. Matthew 6:33-34
I have worked at Georgetown since October 1997. God is amazing and never ceases to surprise me. I am so blessed to have a wonderful family, a wonderful job with the most awesome staff, be part of an amazing church family, and to be one of God's Children. I graduated from Gunter High School & Grayson County College. I have been married to my best friend since 1992. We have 5 children, 2 of which are biological. In 2009 we became the legal guardians to our niece and nephew. They certainly keep us on our toes, and together we make one big happy family.
