I am a Tennessee native from a small town called Smyrna. I began my life with Christ at age 5 in 1977 as my brother shared the Gospel with me. While in college at West Point, I clearly discerned God’s call into vocational ministry in 1992. After fulfilling my obliged duty to the US Army, my wife Tara and I entered full-time ministry as a church planter in 1999. I became the Senior Pastor here at Canaan on June 3, 2012 and what an incredible blessing it is to know Christ and to serve Him with such a great church family. As Pastor, I have the calling to preach, lead, cast and protect the vision and equip. Tara and I have been married since 1995 and are honored to be raising seven children. We’d love to see you at Canaan where we are honored to know Christ and multiply communities of His followers.
