Meet Our Pastor

Pastor & Holly

I was born in Jacksonville, NC to a military family.  My father served our country in the USMC throughout my childhood.  Although my parents were strict, I was raised in a lost home.  I grew up with no knowledge of God or of His wonderful love for me.  It was through the faithful witness of a young marine, that the Gospel was presented to my father.  When I was twelve years old, my father trusted Christ as his personal Saviour and shortly thereafter, my mother was saved.  From that moment forward we faithfully attended church as a family.  Unfortunately, several years passed before I made a decision to trust Christ as my personal Saviour.  As a senior in high school, I recognized my need to be saved and trusted Christ as my personal Saviour.  From that point forward, God began to do a great work in my life and I praise Him for it.  I can honestly say that He turned my life right side up!

God saved my life and changed my desires.  I enrolled in Bible College and started classes one year after I was saved.  It was in Bible College that the Lord called me to preach.  I answered the call and began my preparation for His service.  I began to seize the opportunities God gave to serve Him in our local church.  I graduated from Bible College in 2004 with a degree in Bible and Pastoral Theology.  It was also in Bible College that I met my wonderful wife.

After Bible College, my wife and I had the opportunity to serve the Lord in various ministries.  The Lord has blessed us with three beautiful children.  Juliahna is 11 years old, Briahna is 9 years old and Joseph is 8 years old.  It has been a real blessing to raise our children in a Christian home.
