I am married to my best friend, Christie, and together we are doing our best to keep up with our three busy children. My wife and I both were raised in central Mississippi, and although we did not meet until college, we had similar upbringings. I was raised in a Christian home, and from an early age I can remember developing a love for the local church. I genuinely love the local church. I have been blessed to serve as youth pastor and pastor in three churches.
