My passion lies with Jesus, His Word, and His Bride. My calling in life is to preach the Word in order to magnify Jesus which produces worshippers, disciples, and ultimately missionaries. I believe that the local church is God’s vision and strategy to redeem the lost and reconcile communities.
Jesus is the climax of redemptive history and the focus of my preaching and teaching. He is the embodiment of the Kingdom of God and thus is the balm for all of society’s ills. The Bible is how God chooses to communicate with us; therefore, my primary mode of preaching and teaching is to exposit the Scriptures verse-by-verse. We all recognize that the church is imperfect but she is still Jesus’ bride, therefore we should love her and continue to improve and sanctify her. My ultimate goal for Redeemer Church is to see her embrace the Great Commission call for Denton County.
I have been married to Kristen for over 14 years, and have been in love with her since I was a student at Calhoun Middle School! I am the proud father of Mason (12) and Kenlee (9).
Prior to Redeemer Church, I led a small non profit and pastored at churches in Austin and Houston. I am a graduate of the University of North Texas. I also hold degrees from Dallas Seminary, Southwestern Seminary, and Toronto Baptist Seminary. I completed my doctorate at Southern Seminary on the topic of explaining and applying the Old Testament Minor Prophets. Finally, in addition to my role at Redeemer Church, I teach the Biblical Worldview class to the seniors at Denton Calvary Academy.
