My Story...

I was born in Odessa, TX and spent my entire life in Midland, TX. I spent most of my childhood attending a small Baptist church there. In my teen years, I walked away from the church and then firmly gave my life to the Lord in 2009.
God used a destructive sin pattern of my life to ultimately and sovereignly save me. I was separated from my bride and family due to that sin and in the midst of that sin, God chose to save my wife and then used her greatly to reveal himself to me. I never knew the real God before that. Grace was just a word until that moment. Brandie, by the grace of God, was able to see past my failure as a husband and sin as a human and preach and pray for and to my soul.

Relentlessly pursuing the American Dream I graduated with honours in 1999 but by that time God rescued me and ruined me. He rescued me from my rebellion and death and ruined me for anything else besides the vocational ministry. I am forever thankful.

I met and married my bride Paula in that pivotal season and since that season, we have been a part of campus ministry and church planting for 20 years in Texas, Florida, and Tennessee.

Originally, we planted church-based campus ministries on five different campuses alongside young church plants, but In 2009-2010 God began to enlarge our passion to not only reach students, but plant Gospel-centered churches in college towns. Our burden was heavy for healthy churches that understood the value, nature, dangers, and intricacies of the university and the towns they are in...
