Life Story

Raised in a Southern Baptist church, I grew up singing the old songs that are famous in any traditional church-goers heart. My favorite hymn was Victory in Jesus on page 82 in the hymnal there in the back of the pew. Throughout high school, I sang and played guitar for the youth group at the church I attended as well as led worship in the community for various events. I attended the University of North Carolina at Asheville where I found myself a part of a growing Christian group on campus, Campus Crusade for Christ. While in Asheville, I led worship for Cru's weekly meeting as well as conferences throughout the year. ​Just prior to graduation, I landed a job at Lifeway's Ridgecrest Conference Center in Black Mountain, NC. There my relationship with Christ was strengthened and my heart for leading worship grew eminently. From Ridgecrest, I was offered a position on staff at Element Church in Forest City, NC. Shortly after the launch of Hope Community Church, I became the Worship Pastor here.

My Hope for HCC

My hope for HCC is to see a culture of worship rise up among believers who authentically engage with God on a daily basis (not just Sunday mornings) through song and lifestyle as well as to see non-believers who may attend on Sunday's get a glimpse of heaven and the hope that can be found in Christ alone.
