I joined the staff of Stephens Valley Church in July of 2019. I grew up in northeast Arkansas before moving to Mississippi to attend Mississippi State University (B.S.) and Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson (M.Div.). I have served in churches in Forest Grove, Preston, and DeKalb, MS, most recently serving as the senior pastor of Edwards Presbyterian Church near Jackson, MS. I married my wife, Amber, in 2003 and we have two daughters. I enjoy sports, music, playing the guitar, writing, and reading a wide variety of literature.
