Blue Ridge, TX. Very small town in Texas and would not have traded it for anything.
I attended the University of North Texas where I earned a B.A. in History and minored in religious studies in 2006. I mainly focused on European history. Afterwards, I attended Dallas Theological Seminary and earned a Th. M. with an emphasis in systematic theology. I will always love the seminary and I am very grateful for my time there and those professors and friends who invested in me.
Presently, I am the children’s director at Mansfield Bible Church for K thru 6th grade. I am thrilled to be here and humbled by the opportunity to pastor the Lord’s people.
It’s also worth mentioning that I worked for Starbucks for 9 years, so I can answer coffee questions too!
When and whom did I marry:
I had the privilege of marrying my beautiful wife Kathryn Ewton on November 21, 2009.
Favorite Bible Verse:
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:1-2
Favorite All Time Movies:
I can never pick just one movie, so I choose to have a few favorites like A Beautiful Mind, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and Back to the Future Trilogy. I am also not one to shy away from cartoon movies, like Up, Tangled and Wreck-it Ralph
Some Favorite Music:
Always love seeing what Switchfoot and MuteMath do with music. I also never mind a good song from the 80’s like the Cure or Tears for Fears. Since I am a guitarist as a hobby, anything from Stevie or Jimi is just dandy.
Clement of Rome, Jonathan Edwards, Tony Evans, Chuck Swindoll, John Calvin, Tommy Nelson, and my senior pastor.
