I am a pastor. It is more than a job, it is who I am. It is a career, but a career within a calling.
In the words of Eugene Peterson, "I am lashed to the mast."
I serve at Trinity Baptist Church in Orange, TX, a beautiful church in an amazing town.
It's the best place in the world.
I am the husband of the strongest woman I have ever met, Amy.
She is as much as nurse as I am a pastor.
I am the father of a wild little thing named Beckham and a sweet little thing named Baker.
One is as strong headed as his mama. The other is laid back like dad.
I come from the stocks of West Texas Cowboys and South Texas Farmers.
The traditions of each have shaped my understanding of life and ministry.
Above all I am a follower of Jesus the Christ.
I believe with all that I am that he really is who he says he is.
I am imperfect.
I am deeply flawed.
But I believe.
And I am pursuing.
