I am originally from Paducah, KY. I went to Freed-Hardeman University and got a degree in English/History. Then I spent two years teaching English and the Bible in Italy, mainly in Rome. After marrying my beautiful wife in Florence, Italy in November of 2000, we returned to the states where I attended Seminary. I finished a Bachelor of Theology in 2002 at Harding University in Searcy, AR. I was the minister for the Echo Lake Church of Christ in Westfield, NJ for from 2003-2013.
