About My Family

My family and I reside in Upstate South Carolina. My wonderful wife is currently working on her doctorate while working at a local university where she will be teaching in fall of 2021.

About My Ministry

I have the privilege to serve as Chaplain for the men and women in uniform of the 228th Signal Brigade.

I also serve as a full-time law enforcement Chaplain for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Assistance Program (SCLEAP), which includes five organizations. One of those organizations serves the South Carolina Army and Air National Guard, allowing me the unique opportunity of being even more involved with Soldiers.

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 that as I pray for the Soldiers I serve, my prayers will be more focused. Pray I will continue to seek ongoing opportunities to serve in the military and will continue to teach Sunday School at my church.
