Bio: Born and raised in Portsmouth, VA, I eventually landed in upstate SC because when God calls I move. I gave my life to Christ in 1987 and surrendered to the call to ministry in 1997. I am a three-time graduate from Liberty University and Theological Seminary: BS in Religion (2003), the MA in Religion (Leadership concentration – 2006), and the Master of Divinity (Pastoral Ministries – 2013). I have served as a worship leader and senior pastor in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia since 1996. After experiencing a divorce, God graciously gave me my wife, Jennifer, whom I married in September 2015. Between the two of us, we have 7 children. I am the Lead/Founding Pastor of Overcomers Church in Walhalla, SC, a church plant that is helping those who have been overcome by life to become Overcomers in Christ. Jennifer and I both love people and long to see them enter into a relationship with Christ and walk in the power of His Spirit. I pray that these thoughts I share will challenge and inspire you to greater heights and deeper depths for the glory of Christ.
Why “The Comeback Pastor”? I have been passionate about writing for most of my life. When I found that churches weren’t so quick to allow me to be their pastor because divorce hit my home, I turned to blogging because I rarely had a place to preach. I was faithful in the doors that were open, but God was making it clear that it was time to do what He called me to do many years ago and plant a church. This is my “comeback”. More importantly, I have dedicated my life to helping others make a comeback. I believe that the same God who put me back together can do the same for ANYONE. It is not God’s plan for anyone to live in their setback because every setback is a setup for a comeback.
