I grew up in Lexington, SC, the fourth in a line of seven siblings. I graduated from Lexington High in 2003 and went to Harding University in Searcy, AR to study Bible. At Harding University I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Bible and met my wife, Heather, who has degrees in Art and in English and is a Registered Nurse. Soon after we were married, we left for Tanzania on a mission team to spread the Word in Swahili among Muslims. After five years of church planting ministry in Tanzania, we returned to the USA with two children: Adelaide (born 2011) and Eleanora (born 2014). We were called to serve under RADIUS Church – Lexington to plant RADIUS Church – Saluda in January 2016. I finished seminary at Harding Graduate School of Theology in May 2016 and have a Masters of Divinity Degree. Heather runs home operations and helps in the ministry.
