  • It is an honor to be the pastor at St. Johns UMC! Being a pastor in the Annual Conference for over 20 years, I’ve had the privilege to serve churches of various sizes and settings and enjoyed the uniqueness each church offered the communities they serve. In 2004 I met and married my beautiful wife, Kim who continually amazes me with her love. We share our house with a Chocolate Lab named Grace and a cat named Lila. Kim and I are excited to be part of St. John’s rich history and diverse ministry.

    I completed my undergraduate work in Sociology and Psychology at Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches. After that, I received my M.Div. from Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth.

    When not at the church you will find me enjoying several hobbies including pottery, gardening, knitting, working in my garage, camping/ hiking, and playing guitar (badly). But most likely I will be kayaking Matagorda Bay or the Brazos River, chasing after that perfect fish to bring home for dinner.
