Welcome, friend! I pray that you find your time here both edifying and encouraging. First and foremost, I am a disciple of The Lord Jesus. Secondly I am a joyfully married man to a wonderful wife. Thirdly I love the local church and consider it a supreme blessing to have an opportunity to serve the local church. Currently I am serving as the Associate pastor at Rainsville First Baptist Church. I am recent graduate from Athens State University with a Bachelors in Biology coupled with a certificate for secondary education. I am currently pursuing a Masters in Divinity from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Some of my favorite authors include R.C. Sproul, John Piper, John Grisham, J.K. Rowling, and Mark Twain. I am an avid reader who whole heartedly believes the world is full of good books just waiting to be read. However, there are only so many books that you can read in a lifetime so, read well. I am a coffee connoisseur. I love good food that stirs the heart to good conversation, but I abhor with supreme umbrage the the act of small talk. Small talk is cheap and there are only so many conversations you can have in a lifetime, so converse meaningfully. Read well, converse meaningfully, and most importantly give your life to purpose of enjoying and living for the glory of God, it is man’s chief duty. The ingredients for a life well lived.
