Pastor to Young Adults

I love God's Word.  Through the Bible, God has radically changed my life.  He has provided hope when there was no hope, mercy when I didn't deserve it, and gracious gifts of his goodness.  I have been teaching God's Word for over ten years now and have loved every minute!

My hope is that the Young Adults Ministry at FBC Joelton will help you be faithful to the calling of God on your life.  This is a place for you to connect with believers from all walks of life.  I truly believe that their is no more powerful, unifying force than the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Prior to joining the ministerial staff at FBCJ, I served as a pastoral resident at Cornerstone Community Church in Jackson, TN. I have a Master of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (where I was good friends with my predecessor, Steele Wright) and a MBA from Union University. I married the love of my life, Katie, and we live in Ashland City.

Fun Fact: I love board games and coffee! 

Although I am not picky with my coffee as long as it is caffeinated!

Next Gen Worship and Female Discipleship Coordinator

There is nothing I love more than sharing life with others by introducing them to the brilliance of God's beauty through intentional discipleship grounded in the Titus 2 model. 

The vision I have for Joelton and the surrounding area is that a radical revival would begin through this ministry by simply and obediently following the Great Commission given to us by Jesus. 

I graduated from Cincinnati Christian University and I am currently attending New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Prior to coming on staff with FBC Joelton, I was a teacher in public and private schools. I've been married for almost 14 years and have recently become a mom. 


Fun Fact: I'm mildly obsessed with all things coffee and I will do whatever it takes to win a game of Catch Phrase.
