I'm excited and very grateful to be Children's Pastor at First Baptist of Ashville.  I believe God is leading our children's ministry to build a Biblical foundation for our kids to lean on.  Some quick facts about me:  I'm originally from Pansey, Alabama. I'm a graduate of Charleston Southern University with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education, and a M.Div from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.  Previously, I have served as Children's Pastor at First Baptist, St. Rose, LA and Children's Pastor at First Baptist, Hampton, AR.  I have been at First Baptist of Ashville since September 2015.  

During my free time, you can find me on the hunt for food especially BBQ, exercise, and yelling, "Roll Tide!" 

What I would like to see at First Baptist of Ashville is for every child and their family to know the joy that  Jesus loves them so much, that he laid down his life for them and for them to be a part of the family of God at First Baptist of Ashville.
