- Thirties Ministry Leader
I felt God’s calling to the ministry at an early age. A football scholarship allowed me to pay for college and ultimately took me to the NFL, after which I began full-time ministry as an associate pastor in the San Francisco Bay Area, and subsequently in Estes Park, Colorado and Portland, Oregon. In 1989, I moved to Atlanta, where I met my wife, Melinda. We have been members of Apostles since 2000. I came on staff here in 2013 heading up the 20s and 30s ministry. In 2018 I moved over to Leading The Way, followed by teaching Bible at a local Christian School.
I’m delighted to be back on staff at Apostles (August 2022) ministering in areas that fit my spiritual gifts and experience. Along with Young Adults and Local Ministries, I also assist with Small Groups. We live in Marietta, and have two adult children and three grandchildren.
