For nearly 7 years I was the Lead Pastor of Encounter Life Church in Manchester, TN. We planted this church and it became a beautiful group of people who love Jesus and recognize their need for Jesus every day. None of us pretended like we have it all together. We valued having others in our lives to help us and point us to Jesus in the midst of our struggle, frustration, heartache and every day life. I'm exited to see how God uses ELC in the future, even as we partner together to plant in Oxford.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my wife, playing with my kids, hanging with friends (doing any sort of semi-athletic, board, or card game), and reading. My hope in blogging is to encourage others to trust Christ and grow in their relationship with him, while at the same time, keeping folks connected to our journey in Oxford. I want people to know that faith is not separate from life, but that faith connects to life in every way and it drives how we live.
Because He Lives!
