Youth Pastor


Born and raised in Greenville, I graduated from North Greenville University with a BA in Youth Ministry. Later I received my M. Div. from Tyndale Theological Seminary in Badhoevedorp, The Netherlands. Along with these degrees, I also studied Elementary Education and Film and Video Production at Bob Jones University.

Since an early teen, I have had a passion and heart for kids and families. As paid or volunteer staff, I have assisted with children’s churches, led middle and high school, small groups, done media for camps in the United States and Portugal, assisted various ministries and churches in South Africa for six months, and recently spent nine years doing student/business as missions in The Netherlands. During that time my ministry was to the international/ex-pat youth and families in Amsterdam and Den Haag with XRDS International Church.

For me, it’s all about creating fun, safe, loving environments for youth to find community, have a relationship with God, and follow God’s plan for their lives.
