My wife Holly and I followed God’s leading into ministry straight out of college at the University of Georgia. I was on staff with Young Life and became interested in the Great Tradition of Christianity while earning a Masters of Theology at Dallas Theological Seminary. I joined the staff of Christ Church in Plano, TX and was ordained in 2009.
From the beginning of my ministry, I was involved with church planting as the first Executive Director of Anglican 1000 - an initiative of the Anglican Church in North America. I spent three years equipping leaders, organizing strategic events, and casting the vision to make church planting normal and expected for Anglicans. After my time with Anglican 1000, I served on the staff of Christ Church Plano as Vicar responsible for all day to day operations of a large, multi-staff Anglican parish under the leadership and guidance of the Rev. Canon David Roseberry.
In 2015, Holly and I found that we were being called back to North Georgia in order to be close to our families and to plant a new Anglican church in the strategic city of Athens. We’re thrilled to discover that others have been praying that God would call someone to plant an Anglican church in this diverse, university environment. It is clear that God is at work orchestrating a Gospel movement in the heart of Athens.
