Thanks for stopping by! This site is meant to equip and encourage those who serve the local church. If that describes you, I hope you’ll find the content here to be helpful. Whether you’re the pastor behind the pulpit or a volunteer in the nursery, I want to provide practical resources to assist you and your church or ministry as you serve the Lord.

I have served in a variety of ministry roles within the church. Some of those roles were in a volunteer capacity; some were as a vocational minister and denominational representative. Currently, I serve as the East Regional Consultant for the Kentucky Baptist Convention, a network of 2,350 churches partnering together to reach Kentucky and the world for Christ. In all, I have been serving in some type of ministry role for nearly two decades.

I have been blogging since 2015, but really began to post regularly in 2020. Since that time, the readership of this website has grown to over 9,000 readers per month and over 190,000 all-time views. I hope you will find my posts unique and helpful. Here are my Top 10 Most Read Posts of All-Time. As you can see, there’s something for everyone!

I was born and raised in Pikeville, KY, a small town in the Appalachian Mountains of southeastern Kentucky. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Statistics from Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, KY in 2001. After working as a data analyst for several years and serving in my local church, God called me to vocational ministry. In 2011, I earned a Master of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. I have been happily married to my wife, Brandi, since 2002. We have two sons: Isaiah and Noah. In my free time, I enjoy writing, reading, landscaping, and checking off items on my baseball bucket list!
