My Story

I was raised in a home where I was taught Scripture and who Jesus was from as early as I can remember. At the age of seven, I was convicted of my sin and knew I needed a Savior. I repented of my sin, trusted in Christ, and was baptized a few months later.

In my teenage years, I began playing guitar and writing songs. This became a big part of my life and growth in Christ. I have been involved in writing and leading church music ever since, and still write hymns as a hobby today. I also serve as an Assistant Professor at Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY teaching in the area of corporate worship, hymnology, and liturgical history.

In 2018, we set out on an adventure of a lifetime and planted The Trails with a group of friends who came together to see a church planted in northern Collin County. These have been the most rewarding years of my life, and I praise God for his kindness to our church family. It is an incredible privilege to serve as the pastor of The Trails and to serve this congregation.

My wife, Jamie, and I have now been married for seventeen years. We have four children, Caden, Avery, Addy, and Cannon, who fill our home with wonderful joy and our schedules with a lot of fun activities!

My Hope for The Trails

My hope for The Trails is that the Lord will continue to go before us and that the grace of God would saturate every aspect of our congregation as we seek to glorify Him by making disciples.
