I am the Minister of Music and Media and joined the staff of First Baptist Church November 18, 1992.

My wife, Babs and I were married September 30, 1989. Babs is the office manager for a local Dermatologist. Our son, Zach (Born: January 21, 1995) is a loan officer for an area bank. Zach and his wife, Abbey, live in Longview, TX.

I was born and raised in West Monroe, Louisiana and graduated from West Monroe High School in 1976. In 1982, I received my Bachelor of Music from University of Louisiana at Monroe (formally Northeast Louisiana University). I also pursued a master’s in religious education from the Houston Baptist University Campus of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

I am a transplant survivor. October 9, 2014, I received a double lung transplant from UTSW Medical Center in Dallas.  I have the privilege of being part of the Organ Transplant Support Team at UTSW. Our group meets monthly to encourage one another and help to pre-transplant patients. I am advocate for organ donation.
