I am a fortunate, man!  Teresa and I have been married since 1995.  She is my best friend.

We are the adoptive parents of Eliana and Mikayla from China. They are a joy!  We are the most blessed parents on the face of the earth!!!

Teresa and I have a passion for adoption and the orphans in the world.  We seek to encourage other people in their adoption journeys. Teresa has volunteered with an organization called, Love Without Boundaries.  Their mission is to provide the most loving and compassionate help possible to orphaned and impoverished children in China, and to show the world that every child, regardless of his or her needs, deserves to experience love and be treated with dignity and care.

Teresa and I have been at Crossview Church since January 2018.  God is doing great things at Crossview Church! It is a joy seeing God make a difference in the lives of the people of our church and community.  We love investing in the lives of people! My spiritual gift is “hanging out!” I love hanging out at Starbucks (God’s anointed coffee house) drinking my Grande (Blonde Roast) in a Venti cup and when I earn a free drink on my Gold Card (Yes!  I have a Starbucks Gold Card!)…a Venti, Breve Latte, No foam, Extra hot, with 4 Splenda! Wow! Good stuff!

I completed my undergraduate work at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee.  Go Bruins! We go to the NCAA basketball tournament every year and get bounced after the first round.  I completed my Master’s and Doctor’s degrees at Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.  Enough about the degrees….I have, also, been known to do some teaching at Liberty University in my “spare” time.   

I have served churches in Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina, California, Northern Virginia/D.C., and Texas.  I LOVE what I do!

Teresa and I are, originally, from God’s Country…Tennessee.  Go Vols! I am a HUGE Houston Texans, Astros, and Rockets fan!  I know. I know. But…I am loyal! In addition, I have been known to cheer for the Washington Nationals, Washington Wizards, and Washington Capitals!  

If you are looking for a place to make a difference for Christ...then Crossview is the place for you.  At Crossview we believe Christ for great things!  We look forward to welcoming you home to Crossview Church.
