about

For almost 22 years I served local churches as a Pastor, Associate minister, and youth minister in Texas, North Carolina and Alabama. 

I have masters and doctorate degrees from Duke Divinity School and my undergraduate degree is from Baylor.

In the spring of 2021, I accepted a call to serve as the Director of Thriving Congreations with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. In this role we are taking a design approach to congregational thriving by focusing on five key traits that will assist in transforming a congregation’s mindset, practices, and frameworks for understanding themselves, their community, and their call to as a part of the Kingdom of God. 

Some of my other credentials are that I am an ICF trained leadership coach, I have led workshops on integrating design thinking practices into congregational life, and I atteneded Desiging for Social Systems at the d.school at Stanford University.

I enjoy music, movies, sports and pop culture.
I have several different vehicles I like to drive.
I enjoy travel.
I prefer the mountains over the beach and a snowboard to a fishing boat.
I have a wife and two children who keep us very busy.

My doctoral thesis, Faith by Design, is available on the Duke University Libraries website.
