I am a pastor with a deep desire to help people (especially young pastors) abide in the risen Jesus as their perfect righteousness by living all of life tethered to the cross.
After twenty-five years of pastoral, local church ministry, I've been around the block a few times, serving in large churches, small churches, urban, suburban and rural contexts. I presently am the founding and lead pastor for Creekstone Church in Dahlonega, GA, a small college town north of Atlanta in the Blue Ridge foothills.
I also serve on the faculty for Metro Atlanta Seminary, where I get to teach systematic theology, preaching, and Greek.
Additionally, I lead the Timothy Fellowship, a new mentoring ministry for young pastors.
When not preparing weekly sermons for Creekstone, writing, or spending time with my family and friends, I enjoy watching history documentaries and college football, as well as exploring the mountains of north Georgia.
My wife, Kristy, and I have been married for 27 years and have three children, 23, 21, and 15.
FYI: As far as personality and temperament go, I am an INTJ, Enneagram 5, and ultra high C on the DiSC. Consider yourself warned. 🙂
