My wife, Coletti, and I grew up in Mississippi, met while in college and both graduated from Mississippi College.  I earned both Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.  We served churches in Mississippi and Texas before moving to Louisiana where we served at The Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home.  I earned a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Louisiana Monroe, and served on the faculty at Texas A & M University Central Texas in Killeen for four years before joining the staff of The Worship Place in 2011.  I was honored to serve in the military as a reservist for forty years including chaplaincy with the Army.  We have two children and four grandchildren.  In addition to spending time with my “grandbabies,” I enjoy bass fishing and playing the guitar.

I am a native Texan.  I was born and raised in Houston, TX and nurtured in the Christian faith by loving parents and grandparents.  I committed my life to Jesus Christ during my senior year of high school in 1980.  I met my wife Linda during our college years while we were touring all over the world with the Continental Singers sharing the good news about Jesus.  She played piano, and I played guitar.  We were married in Austin, TX in 1984.  I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1985, and a Bachelor of Science degree from Abilene Christian University in 1986.  Sensing a call to the ministry, I earned the Master of Divinity degree from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Austin, TX in 1989.  I have served three churches (1989-2009), and I have been an ordained minister in good standing of the Reformed Church in America since 1997.  I have served on active duty as an Army Chaplain (2009-2018) with overseas deployments to Iraq (2004-05), Kosovo (2009-10), and most recently Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Kuwait (2016-17).  I have been on the pastoral staff at The Worship Place since January 2019.  Linda and I have three children and two grandchildren.  For personal retreat and renewal, we enjoy our cabin in the piney woods of East Texas.

Minister of Music (Rocky Hollow Campus)

Office: 512-868-0000

I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, accepting Jesus Christ as my Savior at the age of 7.  As a teenager, I surrendered my life to the gospel ministry and began focusing my energy in music at my church and in school.  My main goal in those early years was learning to play the guitar and sing at the same time!  My wife, Christy, and I married in 1978, after which I graduated from Wayland Baptist University in Plainview, TX with a Bachelor of Music Education degree.  We soon moved to Anson where I served First Baptist Church as Minister of Music and Youth, as well as received my Master of Music degree from Hardin-Simmons University.

In 1981, we decided to “go out on the road” and travel from church to church “singing for the Lord wherever He opened a door.”  The Lord blessed us and after 35 years of singing and ministering in over 1,000 churches all over the US and in 4 foreign countries, we found ourselves in Sun City, TX.  Christy and I have been serving The Worship Place since August 2016.  It has been a rewarding experience to be a part of the growth and worship at the Rocky Hollow Campus as Praise and Worship Pastor.
