I grew up in a Christian home attending church multiple times a week and I also attending a private Christian elementary school. I have always known about and believed in God, but it wasn’t until my senior year in high school that I turned my knowledge of God into something that mattered outside of going to church. My faith had not made much of an impact to my decisions and daily living until close to graduating high school. Once in college, I started to put into practice the things that I grew up learning. I had the privilege of taking several overseas mission trips while in college that lead me to move to North Africa working with the IMB.
I graduated from Baylor University in 2002 having double majored in Physical Education and Political Science. I have 20 hours of seminary classes from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. This is my ninth year teaching after coming back from North Africa.
My wife and I celebrated our ninth anniversary this year. We have eleven children, ten of which are adopted. I am coaching football here at MCA and also helping Mr. Keener with some AD duties.
7 But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.
