When I was at my lowest point God reached me. Through the ministry of First Baptist Tampa, my life was changed after receiving Christ, God used me to reach my family and friends. I now have a burden to reach out to people the same way I was reached out to. I strongly believe that God will use this generation in a mighty way. I would like to share my burden with any pastor committee or congregation interested in reaching people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Contemporary Service Pastor/ Family Pastor, Santa Rosa Beach Community Church, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida
Served as a full-time Pastor. My duties began with the Contemporary Service. I was Pastor and overseer of this congregation. I was responsible for the sermons on Sunday morning and the overall guidance and vision of the Contemporary attendees. With the help of a volunteer staff that was recruited, we began a children’s ministry from scratch. I was responsible for the direction, vision, and implementation of this ministry which we called Uptown Kidz. We developed this ministry based off “Elevate” curriculum from Ed Young’s Fellowship Church. This program was extremely successful.

Served as a full-time student pastor. Began with a group of about 40 and maxed out our attendance at 150. Started a very interactive, relevant Sunday night service called FUSION. Started the first home group ministry in our church’s history, and have been very successful in it. Discipled a group of students through Student Leadership University. Led many mission trips and camps including one very in-depth one in NYC. Began a strategic outreach plan to reach our public schools and have successfully planted ministries in schools that are reaching the unchurched right on their school campus.
