I became the Pastor of College Avenue Baptist Church in November of 2010.  I am a graduate of High Point University, and hold two Masters Degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas.  I earned my Doctor of Ministry from Gardner-Webb University in 2004.

Becky and I were married on January 3, 1976 and have two married adult children, Stacy and her husband, Erich and Jason and his wife Andrea.  We also are blessed with seven grandchildren.  Born in High Point, NC and I have served churches in High Point, NC, Morgan Mill, Texas, Dundee, Florida, Faith, NC, Bessemer City, NC before becoming Pastor of  College Avenue Baptist Church.

My philosophy of ministry is based on what Jesus described as the two greatest commandments: to love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength; and to love your neighbor as you love yourself.  All the law and prophets are summed up in these two commandments.  Following these two commands, I seek to lead the church into ministries that seek to meet the various needs of people by building caring relationships with them.  If you really care about people, you will do something about their needs.  We try to base the ministries of our church on the foundation of first loving God and then loving others.  Through this kind of love the Holy Spirit leads us to meet not only the physical and social needs of people, but the spiritual needs also.  Through our friendships and love for others we hope that they will see and meet Jesus.  Having a personal relationship with Jesus is the most important choice that a person can make.  Knowing Jesus gives us real life.
