About My Family

I am a doulos (bondservant) of Jesus, husband to Ashley and daddy to Benaiah, Uriah, Esther and Eliam. I also serve as an associate pastor and chaplain for EMTs and our volunteer fire department. I am also a volunteer firefighter.

About My Ministry

I am the chaplain for our local volunteer fire department and our county's ambulance service, ProMed Ambulance. Additionally, I have the opportunity to serve Three Creeks Baptist Church as associate pastor, focusing on the students and missions. I love being able to lead people to a deeper relationship with Christ through missions, chaplaincy and the local church. The two greatest things in ministry are seeing someone accept Christ and being able to lead someone to put their faith into action!

SBC Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy is a "frontline" ministry that is vital to the extension of the local church. Chaplains reach the lost among the thousands of men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces, correctional facilities, healthcare settings, public safety, disaster relief sites and corporate environments. SBC Chaplains care for the broken, offer hope to the hopeless, and advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ in hard to reach places. The qualifications expected of a Southern Baptist applying for endorsement as a chaplain or counselor are established by the using agency and the Chaplains Commission, SBC. These qualification requirements vary according to the type of chaplaincy or counseling ministry involved but all are expected to meet a high level of ministerial competence. A basic qualification from the Chaplains Commission, SBC, is that an applicant is a Southern Baptist who is a member in good standing with an SBC church. Additional qualification requirements may involve certain age limits, educational background, ministry experience, physical condition, financial and credit history, citizenship eligibility for a security clearance, certification by certain national organizations, and other qualifications specific to the Using Agency or Chaplains Commission, SBC.

Pray

Pray for boldness to share the gospel and open hearts among the people to whom I minister. Pray for people to come to saving faith in Jesus. Pray for more to join missionaries and chaplains.

Participate

Chaplains serve as an extension of the local church in places that other church members and staff sometimes cannot go. Explore the opportunities to extend the reach of your church by becoming a chaplain. Support and pray for chaplains and their families.
