I’ve served teenagers, small group leaders, teachers, executives, and business owners in my professional career and as a business owner. I’ve worked in churches, in marketing firms, and I’ve started my own business. Through all of my journey, coaching, teaching, and encouraging decision makers has been and remains my calling. Throughout all of those different avenues, one constant remained—growth starts with what is unseen rather than seen. Being rather than doing. eleven:28 teaches me, its board members, our staff, and our constituents to listen, discern, go, and reflect. In short, eleven:28 Ministries is a natural extension of the calling on my life.
I’ve earned the Masters of Divinity through Abilene Christian University and a Certificate in Executive Coaching from the University of Texas at Dallas. I currently teach the high school students at my church and sing tenor in the church praise team.
My favorite pastimes are catching a baseball game, trying a new root beer, and marking another baseball field off my list. My wife Marla and I have two sons, Caden and Grant.
