Hometown: Winston-Salem, North Carolina 

Family:  Michaela and I were married in September of 2017.  We met in college while I was at Liberty and she was at VMI.  She is a project engineer for Branch Civil. 

Education:  Associates in Arts in History Forsyth Technical Community College, B.S. Music and Worship: Pastoral Leadership Liberty University.

Background:  I worked at Old Town Baptist Church as their Youth Worship Leader for 10 years. After that I worked one year at VMI as their Chapel Worship Leader. In May of 2017 I became the Worship Intern at Orchard Hills Church, and then in August of 2017 I became the Full-Time Worship Pastor.

My Passion at Orchard Hills: To make sure that on a weekly basis that the Gospel is shared and the name of Jesus is proclaimed as Lord.

Something not many people would know about me: I am super allergic to raw carrots, peaches, and apples but can eat all of the above if cooked…it’s so sad.

Favorite Illustration of Biblical Truth: I love the story of King David.  His life from start to finish is a representation of what following God looks like. He was a bold kid and stood before giants and yet he was a musician and could calm the terrorizing spirit that was attacking King Saul. He had lapses in judgment but at the end of the day he was still called a man after God’s own heart.
