While it is the staff's job to keep the day to day operations across multiple ministries of the church running smoothly, at Legacy we see the staff as leaders to the congregation. It is the staff's job to equip the body to reach, build, and send people for Christ. We encourage our members not just to attend church, but to be the church!

The state of Georgia has been my home for most of my life.  I was born in Atlanta, raised in Woodstock, went to college in East Point, ministered in Carrollton, and now am thrilled to serve alongside the great people of Legacy in Senoia!  My wife, Jessie, and I lived in central Illinois for 6 years while in seminary before coming back to Georgia. 

Since Atlanta is my home, it was only natural that I am a huge Atlanta Braves fan.  I never get tired of talking about baseball, and while I enjoy most sports, baseball is my favorite.  Friends have even told me they would be hard pressed to find someone who has more (useless) Braves knowledge in their head than I have.  

My father, Lynn, and grandfather, John, both devoted their lives as ministers in the local church.  I have always been a part of the church and feel blessed that God has called me to serve as a minister.  While I like enjoy talking all things Braves baseball, I really get excited when I can help others take their next step in trusting and following Jesus.  Coke Zero is my beverage of choice and I think tomatoes are only useful to make pizza sauce and ketchup.

I began working as Legacy's as the discipleship pastor in mid 2019.  I am married to Sue. We have been doing life together since 1986.  We have 3 grown sons, a daughter-in-love and the cutest grandsons ever seen. Our joy and our passion is our family.  We love to have them around and be with them. 


We live in Senoia e and Sue is an interpreter for the deaf.  She also designs e-learning curriculum for a deaf video relay company (ask her all about it).


I have been a preacher, a youth minister, a school bus driver, a limousine chauffeur, a pastor and a few more things along the way.  My passion is loving God and loving people (#lglp)
