The Lord has allowed me to be the Lead Pastor of this wonderful community of faith since 2001. It is a tremendous blessing and continues to be an awesome journey to serve at Compassion Church of the Nazarene!
I was born into a fisherman’s family on the Outer Banks of North Carolina where I spent the first eighteen years of my life. After my high school graduation I attended Campbell University and graduated with a degree in Social Science-History. Upon my college graduation I spent three years teaching (Government Economics) and coaching (basketball and tennis) in Burlington, NC. While in Burlington, I met my wife Lisa and said yes to a call to full-time ministry.
Lisa, a middle school English teacher, and I are the proud parents of three young men (Nick, Camden, & Micah). All three are deeply committed to Jesus.
One of my great joys is developing and empowering leaders to become all that God has called them to be. It was because of that desire that I was able to co-author a 52 week devotional entitled, “Just Jesus.” (www.leaddeep.org).
