What do you do at Good Life Church?
I have the privilege of being the Family and Children’s Pastor.  I am responsible for the recruiting, training and equipping of the family ministries leadership team. This includes leadership and oversight in our weekly ministries to infants through 5th Grade.

How did you first come to Good Life?
My wife and I were attending Pinelake Church in Brandon, MS when I first sensed a desire to serve the local church with my life and career. After months of praying about an opportunity to do this I was contacted by Jason. After joining them in prayer and visiting this area with my wife, we knew that Good Life Church and the Bradenton/Sarasota area were the answers to our prayers.

Favorite things to do?
I love to play golf and pretty much any sport outside. I enjoy watching movies and taking my wife on date night!!

What kind of music do you listen to?
Hillsong United, KB, Phill Wickham, Lecrae.
