Life Story

I grew up in Rome, GA where I graduated from Coosa High School. While in high school I was religious, went to church, had a mom who prayed regularly for me but I didn’t have a personal relationship with Jesus. That all changed on April 1, 1994, as a freshman in college. On that night, I attended a revival service at Pisgah Baptist Church and my eyes were open to the gospel for the first time. I had heard before, but my eyes were open! It was then that I gave my life to Jesus Christ and I’ve been a mess ever since.
My plan was to be a physical therapist! So, I attended the University of Georgia intent on making that a reality. But, that all changed my junior year of college. While in my dorm room God called me into full-time vocational ministry and I said yes to that calling although I didn’t know what that meant.
That calling led me to attain a MDiv at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. While in seminary, I met the love of my life Amy on a blind date and upon marriage we served in various ministry positions. In 2007, Amy and I stepped out by faith to start LIFE Church and it has been a ride ever since.  
We have four beautiful children:  Elizabeth (2004), Alli (2005), Jase (2008) and Bella Kate (2012). I am a mediocre golfer, coffee consumer, awful dancer, and 80’s rock enthusiast. When I’m not working, I’m on a lake, at the beach, or in the woods.  
My heart’s desire is making disciples who make disciples! The church doesn’t need to reinvent anything, we just need to carry out the mission of Jesus! His last words were to “make disciples” and I believe that Rome will be won when we carry out the marching orders of a dying man.
I believe that Rome, Ga is positioned to be the buckle of the Bible belt and I’m committed to sending out disciples from Rome into our city, state, nation, and world. In the New Testament, all roads led to Rome. Today, I believe that all roads lead from Rome!  
Will you join me in this disciple-making movement?
