Family: I've been married to the lovely Alyssa Jade for the better part of 5 years now, and we have one son, Cyrus Ember, who is just over a year old.
Education: I am a graduate of Texas A&M University, 2007, with a B.A. in History, and spent three years working on my Master of Theology at Dallas Theological Seminary. I would love to go back and finish someday.
Ministry Roles: Official? Worship Pastor and Lead Tambourine for Rhea's Mill worship team. Unofficial? Anything that happens in the worship center or involves in some capacity either sound, lights, or video. ;)
Ministry/Work Experience: I spent 5 years working in HR and Finance for a chemical company in Dallas right out of college, and I've been doing music as my primary occupation for the past 5 years. I have also worked as an interim/free-lance worship leader, a school bus driver, and a substitute teacher.
When came I to thus Rhea's Mill? I started as a lead guitarist on the worship team in October 2016, became interim worship pastor in December 2016, and was brought on staff in January 2017.
First car: 1986 Volvo station wagon (740 GLE). I still drive a Volvo station wagon. It's my 4th Volvo since become a licensed driver (out of 5 vehicles total).
Favorite tunes: Absolutely impossible to answer. But Miles Davis on vinyl is definitely high in the rankings.
Books: I love Charles Dickens. But I also love Old Testament history books.
Favorite season: Fall. It's my wife's favorite season, so I love the outings we get to go on during fall. But more seriously, I have terrible allergies, and fall is typically when they start to subside.
First job: I was 8 years old when I was cast as a member of the "Donut Repair Club" Christian video series, The Donut Man. You can still find episodes on YouTube.
