I was raised in Florida by wonderful parents who modeled, mentored, and forged a strong faith and character that is the foundation of my life today. I came to Christ at the age of seven at First Baptist Church Jacksonville through the godly influence of my parents, pastor, and church leaders.
In 2002, I accepted God's call to vocational ministry while attending my church's middle school camp. Uncertain which area of ministry God would have for me, I began to seek godly wisdom from those in leadership around me. In the summer of 2004, I once again felt the Lord clarifying my calling to pastoral ministry. Since that time, I have devoted my life to training for the pastorate.
In 2008, my training took me to Fort Worth, Texas to study in the undergraduate program at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (SWBTS). By May 2013, I completed my B. A. in Humanities. After graduation, I continued at SWBTS and earned my M. Div. in May 2015. I am currently enrolled in the Doctoral program at SWBTS.
On June 2, 2012, I married my lovely wife Jessica. Jessica and I are deeply committed to serving Christ through our home and local church.
Timothy's life and ministry verses are 2 Timothy 2:15 and 2 Timothy 4:1-2.
