I'm the planting Pastor of Embrace in Haughton, Louisiana. Jesus transformed my world when I was 20 years old through the people of LA Tech Wesley. Ever since I've been driven to love Jesus and love like Jesus.

I discovered a love for biblical studies and linguistics at Asbury Theological Seminary in Kentucky and had the privilege of pursuing doctoral work at Middlesex University in London, UK.

My greatest passion is helping people connect their stories to Jesus' story. Lots of people think the bible is a complete bore and very confusing, so I enjoy helping people grasp the winsome and intriguing story of the bible and how it all leads to Jesus.

Social enterprise is also very important to me and is a real way that I can love like Jesus. I want to help communities develop into places of deep relationship, joy, and value. Social entrepreneurs are reformers and revolutionaries with a social mission, and I'm proud to build such community partnerships.

Asa (a.k.a, Awesome-Asa) is my wonderful bride and together we are raising two boys, J'den and Judah, and a Yorkie named Ollie. My family is my world. I'm thankful to be on this journey with them!
