1 Thessalonians 5:11
“So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.”
Things that fascinate me: My Wife (her beauty, the way she loves people, her giftedness, her cooking skills, her creativity and how smart she is.) I fall more in love with her every day.
People who inspire me are: My Mom, my Wife, my Grandparents, my Pastor, TD Jakes, Jentezen Franklin, Bryan Jarrett, Jeanne Mayo
One thing that most people don’t know about me: I play drums
I’ve been in ministry since 2010.
When and where did you get saved: I got saved when I was 7 years old at my home church, First Assembly of God – Tyler, Texas
Music that moves me: Worship music and I love jamming out to some Black Gospel and Southern Gospel music
Favorite singer or band: Jesus Culture, Bethel Worship, Hillsong, Elevation Worship, Leeland, Phil Wickham, Shane & Shane, Gaither Vocal Band
Pet Peeves: not being organized, when a person leaves their trash or mess for someone else to clean up, disrespect
Life-changing moment: When I married Morgan and when Brexton James was born
Hidden talent: Drums (I used to play all the time growing up in my home church, but now that I lead worship I don’t play much anymore.)
Favorite book: The Circle Maker, Love Your God With All Your Mind
Quirks: making random, weird noises
In my spare time I… love to hangout with my wife and son, play miniature golf, play disc golf and read books on leadership and personal growth
Least favorite food: Gizzards…the texture is nasty
What makes you laugh? My wife, Tim Hawkins, myself.
What is weird about you? I have some weird OCD tendencies, specifically with my personal library of books. They have to be put on the shelf a certain way and I don’t like to put a book on my bookshelf unless I have read the entire book. And I also make random, weird noises.
The most exotic place you’ve ever been to: I haven’t really been outside of the country, but I really want to go to Ireland.
The most adventurous thing you’ve ever done: Hiking, Frog gigging
Least favorite thing to do: Going to the doctor or the dentist.
