I feel so blessed to be a part of SonRise Church! My wife, Shannon, and our boys, Carter and Noah, live in Fruitland. I grew up mostly in Princess Anne, attending Washington High School and later attending Salisbury University, where I obtained degrees in Education.

I am a former elementary physical education teacher and personal trainer. Though I loved teaching and training, the Lord led me to ministry in 2011. I was a senior pastor from 2012-2015 at another church in Princess Anne, before coming to SonRise Church. My heart and passion to reach the lost and the un-churched was a big reason why I came to this church. Also, I wanted to become a part of the SonRise multi-site campus strategy and I am fully committed to that strategy of “more of us, in more places, reaching more people for Jesus”. I am now the campus pastor of our third SonRise campus in Princess Anne, which started on October 9, 2016. I am excited for what God is doing in Princess Anne and I am passionate and committed, by God’s grace, to lead SonRise Church Princess, alongside my brothers and sisters in Christ, into making a lasting impact in the community for the glory and honor of the Lord!

I enjoy spending time with my family, keeping up with my teams, the Colts, Capitals, Orioles and Dodgers, as well as, exercising, reading and going to the movies. I love Jesus and I love this church! May all of us “live our lives so others meet Jesus”!
