I was born and raised on the Eastern Shore. I am married to my beautiful wife, Shannon, and we have 2 amazing boys, Carter (15) and Noah (11). I am a former school teacher, adjunct professor, coach and personal trainer. Over 11 years ago, the Lord called me into full-time pastoring. Since then, I have been apart of several awesome churches. Most recently, by the grace of God, we planted Compass Church Salisbury in March of 2021. We have seen people get saved, baptized and live on mission as we strive to “point people to Jesus”. In October of this 2023, Compass Church Salisbury will be planting another church - Compass Church Pocomoke….I enjoy exercising, reading, sports, traveling and spending time with my wife and kids.
