​Blessings to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I am so excited to be serving with you at Providence UMC.  God has been preparing me for the past thirteen years in ministry for such a time as this.  I want to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about my family and me.  
​I was raised in Virginia Beach, VA most of my life.  My formative years were spent either showing horses, participating in 4-H, and UMYF activities.  My parents were active in the Church and I spent a lot of my childhood in church.  I strayed from the Church during my teens, but a serious car accident jarred me back to the Church.  I was reintroduced to Kimberlee (my old 4-H friend) when I was 18 years old.  We were married when we were 21 years old and just celebrated 21 years of Marriage on June 5th. We have four children, Jacob- 17, Gabriel -15, Sarah- 11, and Samuel- 8.  Kimberlee is a graduate of Virginia Wesleyan and was a teacher before deciding to stay home and home-school our children.  I was a mechanic for five years after high school, then I went into sales for several years before feeling the call to ministry.  I have served as a Local Pastor in the North Carolina Conference for the past 13 years while fulfilling my educational requirement in the UMC.  I graduated from Elizabeth City State with a BA in Sociology in 2008 and from Duke with a Masters of Divinity in May of 2012.  
​It has been quite a journey, which started with a foundation in my youth that sustained me in the wilderness of adolescence.  When I was at my worse, I always new that God was calling me to the Church.  I am continually reminded of Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 1:27, “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things to shame the strong.”  God chooses our weaknesses for the good of others.  I humbly offer myself to our Lord as an instrument of service as I join you in ministry at Providence UMC.  Come, Holy Spirit, move among us as we serve together in Wayne County.
