"When I was nine, my grandfather taught me a valuable lesson as we were visiting my Aunt's gravesite. He pointed to a gravestone and told me that the important feature was not the epitaph, the name, of even the dates, but the dash. He told me that the dash represents the life a person led. I want my dash to represent a life that makes a difference to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ. This journey began on August 3, 1997 when I, a Senior in High School, repented and believed in Jesus as my savior and Lord. This day was the defining moment in my life and I have made the commitment by His power to conform myself to His likeness. On December 7th of that same year, God called me into His ministry. I am committed to His service and have prepared myself through my college and seminary education. My calling has developed a desire in me to make disciples through preaching and teaching from the pulpit, in the neighborhood, and to the ends of the earth."
"I have served churches in various roles as a Youth Pastor, Education Minister, Pastor, and Missionary. I have been the Pastor at Carver since September 1, 2010. Prior to coming to Carver, my wife and I had the privilege of serving with the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention in South Asia as church planting strategists targeting people groups who have never heard of Jesus. As a church, we continue to minister in South Asia through giving and short term trips."
"I was born in Fontana, California, and moved across the U.S. living in Florida, North Carolina, and South Georgia (Tifton). One of the greatest joys in my life is the moment my now wife, Morgan, said yes to marry me. We were married on August 7, 2004 in Tifton, GA. With grace upon grace, God has blessed us with four wonderful kids; Jotham, Riya, Jude, and LeleAlan."

From a young age I was captivated by music. I learned how to play the guitar by the time I was 13 years old and then piano in college. It was through song and the grace of God that the Gospel found me and ignited a passion for leading the worship of God's people. God's command to his people, Colossians 3:16, is to sing a Gospel centered message that admonishes and teaches one another in wisdom. This is my focus. This is my calling.
