I have lived and served in the Bunker Hill community all of my life. I was born and raised in the BHCC church and have been blessed to be a part of the family here and God's work through His Kingdom here. I have had the privilege to serve in many different roles here at the Church. Some of those roles include working as the Youth Minister for over 10 years and having a ball doing it.  I have served on the board or for over 22 years and just about any other hat one can wear as a part of the body of Christ.
I absolutely love getting to know new people and I simply Love people. Not just in this community but from wherever they come from.  I am blessed to have four children and six grandchildren and love spending time with them all.

I grew up in Bluff City, TN in the Bunker Hill community. I am married to my wife of thirty-one years, Lisa. We are blessed with a daughter Amanda, a son-in-law Austin and a grandson, Lincoln. I have been an active part of BHCC for thirty years. During that time, I have served on many teams and committees that serve and pray for the mission and vision of the church. I had the honor to spend many of those years as a youth sponsor and teacher, as well. I am thankful for the opportunities I have had to build relationships with the youth in the area and share Christ's love with them. I look forward to how God will use me in the work of His continuing Kingdom here at BHCC and throughout the world.
