I have had the privilege to serve Christ in full-time & bi-vocational ministry for over 24 years. I currently serve as the Executive Director for FOCUS Ministries, a thriving prison & reentry nonprofit serving incarcerated men and women in Knoxville & East Tennessee. I have also authored the book I Have Ears: Learning to Hear from God.
My heart comes alive when inspiring the Church toward greater Christ-likeness through strategic disciple-making. I love to use story, teaching, and community-building to introduce others to Christ and His eternal Kingdom.
I have been blessed with the greatest wife, Michelle, who happens also to be the greatest mother to my two wonderful children, Kaitlyn McKenzie and Elijah Brant. We have also adopted two lovable mutts, Lucy and Cash.
