I was born and raised in the Central Ohio region (less than an hour from Columbus, OH) in a household that was sometimes more tumultuous than harmonious. Despite some difficulties in my home life, God saw it profitable for me to attend a Christian school and a local, Fundamental church. It was this church that taught me the Gospel and gave me a basic understanding of Scripture.


During my Junior year of high school, my dad and I moved to the Central Pennsylvania region. I had drifted from my faith, but God was sovereign and placed certain people in my life that convinced me to reconsider eternity. I did, and moved to Greenville, South Carolina to pursue ministry degrees. I still had some doubts about fundamentalist Christianity, and left Greenville to return to Pennsylvania and reconnected with Natalie, who became my wife in 2015.


Natalie convinced me to start attending her church and in doing so I was able to serve with the youth group, music ministries, and adult Sunday School in various capacities. It was at this point in my life that I really developed my preaching and teaching ability. We left that ministry to pursue further education and training. Currently, we reside in Greenville, South Carolina and I am pursuing my Master of Arts in Biblical Studies from BJU Seminary.
