I grew up the son of a Southern Baptist Music Minister and my Father served Churches across West and Central Texas as I was growing up. I went to high school in Brownwood Texas, college at West Texas A&M and Seminary at Southwestern BTS in Ft. Worth. I worked in radio, marketing and advertising in DFW for several years before I was called to preach. I'm excited about being the pastor at Acton Baptist and look forward to what God is going to do here in His Church.
