I was born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina. I was blessed and continue to be blessed to be a part of a loving Christian family. My parents instilled Christian values in me throughout my childhood and helped lead me in my relationship with Christ. At a young age, I made a profession of faith, and because of His Grace, I have continued to walk with Him throughout many seasons of life. I have had the opportunity to be a part of different youth groups, worship teams, mission trips, and church communities. Through those experiences and moments, God has taught me to seek Him in everything I do and to surround myself with Gospel-Centered worship, community, and mission.
My wife, Jenna, and I have known each other since middle school and have pretty much been together ever since. We got married in 2014, and she is such a big influence in my life. She loves others well and helps point me to Christ every day. We have been blessed with two young children, Ellie and Caleb.
