Pastor's Story

I was raised in Kilgore, Texas, and received Jesus Christ as Saviour when 15 years old. After high school, I went to Stephen F. Austin State University and obtained a BS Degree in Environmental Science. Two years were spent in Grand Prairie as my wife, Kim, attained her degree in Medical Technology. We moved to Lufkin in November 2000. After 7 years of Environmental work, a transition was made to the Quality field where I took on responsibilities as a Lean/Six Sigma Manager. Kim also made a transition to being a stay-at-home mom where the work load was heavy but much more rewarding! 

While I enjoyed the secular work, God was showing that He had other plans for my life! After serving in our local church in various capacities, I surrendered to God's call to preach the Gospel in March 2006.Little did I know that in September 2009, He would allow me to pastor the very church in which I had surrendered to preach. 

To God be the glory, great things He has done over these many years! He has blessed me with the best wife, four wonderful children who are all serving the Lord in the church today, and a church family that is beyond compare. We are so thankful to be a part of the ministries of Heritage as the Lord does His amazing work! We look forward to meeting you and hearing your story as well!
