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.
