I was born here in Atlanta. I grew up about three miles from the church and attended Northside High School just down the street. I met my wife, Carol, when I was a sophomore in high school and we never dated anyone else. We were married after my freshman year at Georgia Tech. Carol and I have two children and five grandchildren.
After graduating from Tech I worked in the corporate world until 1994 when I accepted a call to become a church administrator. I worked as an administrator at two local churches and a Christian school before coming on staff here at Apostles in 2001.
