About

I am the pastor of Peavine Church in NW Georgia.

In 2017 Peavine was one of the 100 fastest growing churches in America.

In the last three years, Peavine has doubled in size and currently runs over 1,500 every week.

I serve as the National Evangelism Strategist for the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Before that I was the Director of Evangelism and Communications for the Georgia Baptist Convention …. and….

The Director of Media Strategy for the same organization.

I have pastored two other churches and both churches grew. At his last church,  Liberty BC, it experienced great growth Рeven to the point of having to relocate. Liberty was recognized as 1 of only 5 churches to grow for 10 consecutive years. It was in the top 25 fastest growing churches for one three year period.

I am married to my beautiful childhood sweetheart, Sherry, and we have 2 girls. Savana and Mikayla and one grandson with two more on the way!

I have a Masters in Leadership at Liberty University.

I am a certified John Maxwell Leadership speaker and coach.
