I am a Computer Systems Engineer and partner in several businesses, as well as a Ruling Elder at Trinity Grace Church (PCA) in Northwest Arkansas. My amazing wife and three wonderful daughters continually reveal to me the goodness of God.
Reading is one of my passions (some have called it an addiction), along with playing and watching all kinds of sports, and travelling to other countries to learn about their history and culture. Most of what I read involves apologetics, reformed / covenant theology, and biblical studies with a consistent mixture of history, biography, science, classic literature, and the occasional mindless special-ops adventure novel.
Final Note: While I may read quite a few seminary level books, I do not have a seminary degree. If that fact alone keeps my blog from being taken too seriously, then that may not be such a bad thing. I aim to take caution, lest I say something wrong, however I refuse to let that be a fear which keeps me from saying something right. My prayer is that God would grant me humility when I am wrong and that he would grant you grace when pointing it out.
I am married and have three little girls, which is like living in a constant musical. I have been a pastor for six years and planted a church. I have an M.Div. from Westminster Theological Seminary. Before that I spent most of my time working in college ministry and in the field of outdoor education. I love being a pastor. It is a great gig, at least until I can start making world renowned banjos.

I live in Bentonville, Arkansas with my precious wife, Jenny, and our five children. I grew up in Fayetteville, AR before moving to Houston, TX to attend school and play football at Rice University. It was in Houston, that the Lord brought Jenny into my life and developed in me a passion for His Word. I worked many jobs during the off-season and am thankful for that experience. I worked with Young Life for several years as both a volunteer and eventually as an Area Director. God's call to church ministry, however, was clear and I went back to finish my M.Div at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS. After graduation, the Lord called us to plant a church in Benton County, Arkansas. That was 10 years ago - and we have served here since that time at Trinity Grace Church.
