I currently serve as Senior Pastor at First United Methodist Church of Paragould, AR. Before ministry, I studied mathematics and applied mathematics at University of Central Arkansas (BS, MS). I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call to ministry and greatly enjoyed seminary at Duke Divinity.
This site allows me to post from time-to-time on topics that interest me. I preach nearly every week and sometimes post most sermons here. I have a great deal of interest in preaching including areas of rhetoric and hermeneutics. I am a millennial and a sometimes skeptical believer. Like most folks my age, I question nearly everything and am not easily convinced. This certainly shapes my preaching, hopefully for the better. I look forward to engaging this new age of ministry, especially folks who think the church is uninteresting or unaware of their difficult questions.
