I hope to meet you in person, before the rapture that is, on either a Sunday morning at our chapel or meeting up for coffee and conversation.
I met Jesus Christ as my personal Savior just days before my 18th birthday out of High School, bringing me a new purpose, identity, and a God-given plan for my life! (You can read more at “Teenage Wasteland”.)
I grew-up Catholic, went to Catholic elementary school and actually felt a call to the vocational priesthood until the call to the girl across the room became stronger.
Since giving my life to the Lord Jesus Christ, I have been involved in vocational church ministry with Adventist, Nondenominational Evangelical, and Southern Baptist churches, in both pastoral and chaplain roles.
In years past I have served as a church planter, a staff pastor, a senior pastor with churches and ministries in Ohio, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, and northeast Alabama. I have served as a hospital chaplain, with both independent, Baptist, and Catholic hospitals in Georgia, Florida, and here in Mobile, Alabama with Providence Hospital.
I live in west Mobile, Alabama with my beautiful wife Steph, two of my four children still at home, two others close by in Mobile, our family pet Keef, and I have two grandchildren.
In addition to my pastoral ministries with CrossHope Chapel, I have an active evangelical wedding & vow renewal officiating ministry for destination beach brides along the Gulf Coast and at our chapel.
If you are looking for some spiritual resolution or relief and feel like I may be able to help as a pastor, please visit our Chaplain-on-Call page.
If you simply would like to sit down over a cup of coffee at a Starbucks or at our chapel to talk about pastoral care issues that you may want an ear and/or some insight on. Please contact me and I ‘ll be happy to arrange a meet-up.
