I am a native of El Paso. My family moved here to serve the Highland Park Baptist Church, where I was raised. I attended Irvin High School and Hardin-Simmons University where I was in the Cowboy Band. At that time, I also began serving a church as music minister in a church near campus. While in college, I met the love of my life, Leann and we married shortly after graduation. After college, I pursued a career in the music ministry but was soon called to the pastorate. I attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth while pastoring a small church in the country. After seminary, I was a pastor in Kansas before returning to El Paso to the Chapel of the North Hills. While in El Paso, I have also taught public school music and pursued further education at Trinity Theological Seminary.
