Originally from Alabama, I have lived as a Mississippi “transplant” for almost 30 years. I moved to Oxford in 2002, where I became the director of the Baptist Student Union at Ole Miss. I hold degrees from the University of West Alabama (B. S.—Biology), New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (M. Div.—Christian Education), and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Ed. D.—Leadership). My wife and I have four wonderful children, and in all that we do we want to bring glory to God in our lives and work.

I want to see college students discover who they are in Jesus Christ and join Him in His work, whether on our campus, in our community, or around the world. When I’m not busy leading collegiate ministry or engaging in adjunct teaching, I enjoy spending endless hours with my family, watching sports, gardening, fishing, reading, and, occasionally, coin collecting. I love good conversation and a smooth cup of coffee, so I invite you to join me anytime—the first cup is on me!

Associate Director

A Georgia native, I am new to Ole Miss and Oxford culture.  I hold degrees from the University of Georgia (Bachelors of Science in Psychology and a minor in Religion) and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (M. Div. Collegiate Ministry). I have served in several churches and on several campuses in various ministry roles.  I am married to a wonderful and amazing woman named Sarah.  We both desire to know the Lord and to serve Him in all that we do.

My prayer is that students would come know and trust Jesus as their Lord and savior and as Ephesians 3:19 says, “to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”  I would love to get to know you and hang out sometime, come by the BSU anytime and we will make it happen.
