I am the new Senior Minister at Golf Course Road Church of Christ in Midland, Texas. We are currently in the process of moving from Amarillo and will begin our work in Midland on September 19. My first Sunday in the pulpit at GCR will be August 1.
Our God has blessed me with a beautiful and loving wife of 31 years, Carrie-Anne; three perfectly wonderful daughters, Whitney, Valerie, and Carley; and a brand new son-in-law, David.
I’m a graduate of Dallas Christian High School and Oklahoma Christian University and hold a Masters in Theological Studies from Austin Graduate School of Theology. I enjoy reading Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Eugene Peterson, Tim Keller, and anything by Skip Hollandsworth. I am passionate about Texas history, Dr Pepper, and the Lord’s Supper. My preaching and writing emphasize the grace and mercy of God for all men and women, the great blessings of Christian community, and the on-going sanctification of the saints. It should also be noted that I suffer a complicated love/hate relationship with the Dallas Cowboys.
My earnest prayer is that our gracious Father will use this blog as another way to communicate his love and mercy and grace to his people. My hope is that these writings will encourage you in your Christian faith and challenge you to grow as Christ is formed in you. I also see this website as a way for you to get to know me a little better as I grow into the call of God to faithfully preach his Word to the world he created. I hope my brakes-off, no-looking-back, full-steam-ahead commitment to our Lord is evident in what is presented here. May our God’s will be done in and through this blog as it is in heaven.
Thank you for reading.
