I was called to Southland and began serving here in April of 2017. My role here is Worship Development Pastor which basically means I get to hang out with worship leaders and help develop them spiritually and artistically, and also serve alongside them in leading worship.
The thing I love most about my role is that it centers around the development of leadership in people. I’ve always had a passion for both connecting with people, and the worship life of the church. In this role, I get to enjoy both of those things.
I think the people who have had the greatest influence on me in my ministry life would be my wife and my parents. My wife Liz carries my burdens with me and supports me beyond measure, while being an amazing mother to our children. From my parents, I got to see first hand from them while growing up in the church what it meant to fully invest in the body of Christ and the fruit that comes from that. My late father Terry was a pastor in Illinois and my mom Debbie supports me now like she supported him.
I grew up in central Illinois in a small town called Moweaqua, and because of that, I’m an avid Cubs, Bears and Fighting Illini fan. After attending Lincoln Christian University where I received a degree in Music Ministry, I have worked in worship ministries in Tuscola, IL, and Mason, OH. While Kentucky has not been our home for very long, we’re loving it here!
My wife Liz and I have been married for 13 years, and we have 2 children. Our son Elijah is 10 and our daughter Lainey is 7. The only person that loves these 3 more than I do is Jesus. They are my world, and there is never enough time to spend with them. We love being active together, or popping some fresh popcorn and enjoying a Disney movie together.
In my brief time here at Southland, I have already realized it is a very special place. The people here are genuine Christ followers who love introducing others to Christ and building His kingdom. I couldn’t possibly feel more privileged to serve here.
I have a fairly healthy fear of heights, but only if I’m staying high up, and not coming back down. If I have a healthy amount of time to realize I’m high up and it’s not changing, I struggle BAD.
