I’m originally from Mississippi, moved to eastern Kentucky to attend seminary, and now I’m back in Mississippi! I am a United Methodist pastor and I am currently appointed to the Americus Parish (Pleasant Hill/Salem) just outside of Lucedale, Mississippi. I’m a graduate of Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky where I earned a Master of Divinity degree, and a graduate of Liberty University where I majored in Religion. I was commissioned a Provisional Elder in the Mississippi Annual Conference in 2018 and ordained an Elder in Full Connection in 2022. In one form or another, I’ve been serving in pastoral ministry since 2012.
I am married to Jessica who graciously puts up with me. I love to read, study theology, preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and I also love learning as much as I can about the world in which I live. My newest hobby is amateur radio (callsign: W5JDQ).
I don’t fit in typical boxes of conservative, liberal or whatever. I’m told that I’m too liberal for some and too conservative for others. I consider myself a moderate and make decisions on where I stand on things based on the situation itself, not what other people say I should think about it.
