I am originally from Mobile, Alabama and I have lived in Phoenix since 2016. I married my beautiful wife, Ashley, in May 2018 and we live in Anthem, Arizona. For my bachelor’s degrees, I double majored in Music and Christian Studies at the University of Mobile (2005). After my undergraduate work, I pursued a Master of Divinity (2011) and a Ph.D. in Church History (2018) from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary. I have been the Worship Arts Coordinator at GCU since 2018, and I have also served as Worship Pastor at CrossLife Church since 2016.
