I had the great privilege of growing up in a Christian home in SC as one of four children. I accepted Christ as Savior when I was very young. I received the call to ministry at age 16. Growing up I loved playing the drums, getting lost in the woods, and going to the library to listen to audiobooks. While I still deeply love all of these activities, today I most enjoy: spending time with my wife and 3 daughters, going on outdoor adventures, and mobilizing college students to do the work of ministry!
