I began serving Woodlawn Baptist Church as pastor in January 2001. I am a native of East Fork, MS near Liberty, and a graduate of Mississippi College and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. I have pastored for over twenty-two years in four previous churches, located in Magnolia, Bogue Chitto, Greenwood, and Foxworth, MS. I and my wife, Gail are parents of one son, Cade. and grandparents to 1 grandson, Jack. My goal is to share the good news of Jesus Christ, to proclaim the treasures of the Bible, and to be an example of the love of God to the people I encounter every day.
