I was raised in Northeast Texas by wonderful parents who modeled a strong faith and character that is the foundation of my life today. After completing high school, I attended Baylor University and graduated in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts in Religion. I completed my master’s degree at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2006 and earned a doctorate from Southeastern University in 2022.
After pastoring several established congregations, God began to stir my heart with the dream of planting a life-giving, spirit-filled, community church, but I was not sure where! Through much prayer and consultation, the Lord spoke to me clearly that I was to go to Keller, TX to start a church.
