What I Do For GPC: Help Pastor John in any way I can, by mentoring people, leading worship, teaching, praying and being an encouragement.
What I Do For Fun: Hang out with my wife and kids, take them to the movies, fish, play music, go glamping (a millennial word for camping in the backyard with all the creature comforts), and visit with friends and extended family.
What Makes Me Laugh: Immature, jr high jokes.
What Makes Me Cry: Toy Story 3 & Coco.
In A Previous Life (before GPC): When I was 22, I taught drivers ed for about 6 months, and while riding with several teens, I thought I might meet Jesus early.
Best Advice I Ever Received: Rome wasn’t built in a day. Things worth doing take time and effort.
Things I Care About: My family, my friends and church, and God’s plan.
Family Matters: I love my wife, Julie. I still can’t believe she said yes to my second marriage proposal! She is more than a great wife and mother – she’s the type of person that you realize you’re privileged to call your friend. 5 years after we were married, we welcomed my favorite girl, Abigail, into the world. She is creative, artistic, and a joy to be around! 7 years later, her brother Benjamin was born, and he is funny, neat and tidy (he gets his own wet wipe for his face after a meal), and an extremely energetic whirlwind!
My Secret Talent: I do a pretty good Yoda impression.
My Favorite Cartoon Character and Why: The Roadrunner. Because he/she effortlessly outwits the Coyote every time no matter how hard he tries.
Grew Up Where: Born in Tulsa, OK, and grew up in Savannah, GA
Favorite Movies: Tommy Boy, Dumb and Dumber, UP, Dan In Real Life
Food I Can’t Live Without: Chinese
Favorite Books: The Bible, Purpose Driven Ministry, Thus Saith The Lord, Smith Wigglesworth: The Secret of His Power, The Hunger Games Trilogy
Favorite Music/Bands: Michael W Smith, 90’s clean rap, Lecrae, Creed, Audio Adrenaline, TobyMac
What Made Me Want To Follow Jesus: I had awesome parents who taught me the Bible from an early age. When I was 6, Willie George, aka Gospel Bill, asked whoever wanted Jesus to be Lord of their life to come down to the happy balloons with smiley faces, and the rest is history.
