Describe your primary responsibilities at First: I lead our team of musicians and vocalists during our Contemporary worship service. My goal is to shape our service through music that brings grateful praise and meaningful worship to our Savior. I often tell others that Sunday mornings are the best part of my week!

What are your favorite books?
I love mystery novels and (auto)biographies written by or about people I admire and respect.

What is your favorite thing to do in Florence?
We love to spend time in the revitalized Downtown area of Florence.

Tell us about your family:
I’m blessed to have been married to my wonderful wife, Julie, for more than 30 years. We have two beautiful children, Tyler and Jesslyn, along with their spouses Ariel and Morgan, respectively.  Although they live in other cities and states, we treasure the times we get to spend together.

Tell us about your hobbies:
Music is my biggest hobby. Whether I’m in our home, my office, pickup truck, or just working in the yard, I love to listen to music that makes me smile or has a message that speaks to me.

Why are you excited to be a part of First Pres?
I’m excited to be a part pf First Pres because I believe God has plans for us beyond our expectations. It’s awesome to see how First Pres purposefully leads and teaches us into growing our relationship with Christ.  It’s also exciting that as that growth occurs we are finding more and more ways to reach out to others in our city who otherwise might never walk through the doors of our church buildings.
