Thank you for visiting my blog.

Just a brief comment about my life is that I am a follower of Jesus Christ, husband to my beautiful wife, dad to two amazing daughters, grandpa to five wonderful grandchildren, and ordained minister serving on staff with First Baptist Clarksville Tennessee – Military Ministry. I am also a combat Veteran with twenty years of Active Duty Service in the United States Army, outdoorsman who enjoys fishing and hunting, avid reader, novice blogger, certified trauma professional, and a graduate from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MTS with Missions Emphasis, ’16) and Liberty University (BS Religion, ’13).

Currently pursuing a Doctor of Educational Ministry with Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The focus of my project is on combat trauma (post-traumatic stress) and the response of a local church. The dissertation will examine the impact trauma can have on the entire family and how the church can be better equipped to respond to our military families struggling with trauma caused by war.
