About Me:
Well, I was born and raised in Gaffney, SC and raised in church (Cherokee Ave. and Blacksburg First Baptist).  Was called to ministry in 1989 at a conference in Charlotte NC. I have served the Lord through youth/children’s ministry and pastoring for over 30 years. Hard to believe it’s been that long.   I married my beautiful wife, Becky, in 2001 and we have 3 amazing daughters: Sydney, Kylee, and Abbie.
