It is a great blessing to serve our church as the Care Minister. As our church embraces brokenness, I seek to lead our care teams in responding to the needs that often accompany it. I have attended Northwest for several years and joined the staff in 2012. After graduating from Dallas Theological Seminary and developing a counseling practice, the Care ministry is a wonderful place to put my skills and gifts to work for the Kingdom.
I was raised in a Christian home and grew up in church in Brownwood, Texas. I accepted Christ as a teenager but kept God at arm’s length for many years. After college at Baylor, I returned home to run the family business. I began serving at a church there, and enjoyed almost 20 years of slow but steady spiritual growth before moving to Dallas. At Northwest, my spiritual life spiked as my family and I became involved in a small group for the first time. Some of the greatest blessings in my life are a direct result of relationships developed there and the way God revealed Himself in the midst of life with those people.
I may be known best for my accent, bringing a little bit of the country to the big city. I love watching movies and playing games with my wife and son. I enjoy backpacking - my son and I are still working on Mom. When I’m not reading something, I’m writing something. A passage that has greatly influenced my ministry is Gen. 2:18, the first crisis in scripture.
