Servant Leaders

Lead Pastor-Elder

God has called me to serve as leader of the different Pastor-Elders at Foothills Church. Each of us will be responsible to teach, shepherd, protect, and guide those under our care. It is with great joy that I humbly serve God’s people in this capacity.

In conjunction with my role at Foothills, I also operate a local business in Hickory, NC. I have served as Director of Adult Discipleship and as Elder/Chairman in previous church ministry. My wonderful wife, Emily, and our children – Everett, Zachary, Brennan, and Chloe – have taught me so much and support me in serving you.

God called me and my family to His ministry at Foothills Church in 2010. As an elder, I have the privilege of working closely with the leadership team, serving our church body, and leading in Youth ministry. Working in this capacity is such an honor, and God continues to stretch me in my faith as I follow His guidance and direction.

Professionally, I have worked in Healthcare Management for the past 26 years. I have been very blessed to work with many fine colleagues in this field. Additionally, I am so blessed to have the wonderful support of a loving wife and two boys who join with me in passion and commitment to serve Christ through our church and community.

As a teenager, God placed many people in my path to show me my need for a Savior. I soon placed my faith and trust in Jesus Christ and became a born-again Christian. Ever since that day, I have had a passion and desire to study, know, and teach the literal and inerrant Word of God.

I am a graduate of Word of Life Bible Institute and have attended courses through Moody Bible Institute. In the past, I have had the privilege of serving as deacon and have been blessed to serve as a missionary for Word of Life. I am grateful to the Lord for allowing me to share these experiences with my wife, Tracy, and our four children, Caleb, Elizabeth, Ben, and Katherine.
