I have worked in the corporate world and as a roofer with my father. I taught for five years at Heritage Baptist Academy (1991 – 1996). I earned a B.A. degree in Bible with an ancient language minor from Bob Jones University (1996-1999). I returned to Heritage Baptist Ministries and assumed the role of associate pastor and school principal. While working in that capacity I earned an M.A. degree in Christian studies from Luther Rice Seminary (2008). I became the sole pastor of Heritage Baptist Church in 2010. I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin’s Follicular Lymphoma (stage four) in that same year. I have completed treatment for this non-curable but manageable cancer. I am involved in all areas of the church and school ministry along with my wife, Sue. I have five sons: John, Henry, Walter, William, and Jedidiah.
