God has blessed me with a wonderful family. On May 4, 2002, I married the woman “whom my soul loves” (Song of Solomon 3:4) —Delia D’Auria. Delia and I have five precious children, Jeremiah Clay, Judah Leonard, Eliza Linen, Piper Rene, and Edith Joy.
God has also blessed me with a wonderful ministry. After graduating from college with a degree in music, I had the honor of serving my home church as pastor of worship from January 2003-December 2011. During this time I was mentored by Godly pastors who taught me how to love and care for God’s people. It was during this period that I came to know that I would spend the rest of my life serving and shepherding God’s people. To prepare for this I enrolled in seminary classes and graduated from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in December 2010.
In 2012, Michael Carpenter (elder), Steve Simkins (elder), myself, and about 50 other individuals started Reformation Christian Fellowship. Since then, I have only become MORE convinced that shepherding God’s people is what God has called me to do. More and more, I love to study, preach, and teach the Word. More and more, I count it a joy to meet with and offer biblical counsel to God’s people. More and more, I am so encouraged and edified by our weekly time of corporate prayer. More and more, I look forward to seeing how God will continue to cause his Word to “increase and multiply” (Acts 12:24) through our ministry. I am so very grateful for these blessing from God’s hand.
Soli Deo Gloria
