My Story...

I am a wife to my best friend Kevin and a mom to our two fun kids, Channing and Maddox, who couldn’t be more different from one another!  We have lived in Knoxville since 2010, and I really love the mountains and the scenery.  It is completely different from the landscape where I grew up in Lubbock, Texas. I currently enjoy serving Legacy as an administrative assistant and have been since 2013.

My Story...

I was born and raised in a small West Texas town. My spiritual life was heavily influenced by my hard-working dry-land cotton farmer grandparents. They were Southern Baptists and taught me by example how to work hard all week, and how to rest hard every Sunday. Although they must have been imperfect, I never saw it, and looked up to them and their religion, even though it required starched suits, polished boots, and silence during sermons. One day, my Grandpa, or Papaw as I called him, was reading his big black King James Bible, as he often did. I finally got the nerve to ask him, “Papaw, how did you learn so much about God”? He replied, “Well, Chase…there’s a lot that I still don’t understand about Him.” It was then, at that moment, that I was first in awe of God. How could a wise old man like my Papaw, still find endless mystery in someone unless that Someone was unfathomable? I have been in awe ever since.

My Story
I grew up in the oilfields of West TX going to school at both Texas Tech and the University of Texas (Permian Basin Campus) for biochemistry resolved to become a uber wealthy surgeon. 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...
