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 First Baptist Church in Richmond, TX. Richmond is a new adventure for our family, and we are delighted to live in this incredible community.
I am the husband of the strongest woman I have ever met, Amy.
She is as much a 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 Christ.
I believe with all that I am that he really is whom he says he is.
I am imperfect.
I am deeply flawed.
But I believe.
And I am pursuing.
