About

Hey there! Let me start off by saying how excited I am that you are here stopping by to check out a piece of my life!

I hope while you are here on the site exploring, something inspires you, makes you smile, catches your eye and you are able to say to yourself, “I am glad I stopped by this page!”

So what’s to know about me?

I am a mentor, student pastor, former basketball coach and player, husband, leader, teacher, speaker, writer and student of life. I have dedicated my life to living out the Great Commandment and Great Commission, which is to: love God completely, love myself correctly and love others compassionately while sharing God’s love day by day.

I have a lovely wife named Jasmine, who you see in the picture above and below. Outside of God she is the best thing that has ever happened to my life. That says a lot for a basketball junkie! ๐Ÿ™‚

I am a former Division 1 basketball player. Shout out to U of D. I was an All American in college for University of Pikeville. I also played some professional basketball for the Lake Michigan Admirals. Steph Curry has nothing on me! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have recently completedย my MA in Ministerial Leadership at Wesley Seminary. I serve with some amazing Kingdom leaders atย Transformation Church in Indian Land, South Carolina. Right outside of Charlotte.

Before you leave here are some great options for you:

Drop me a message, say hello, connect with me on social media, subscribe to my blog by putting in your email or press follow if you have a wordpress account. Once you do this, you can expect a message from me from time to time.

I’m looking forward to our time of growing together!

I know you are here for the first time but let me just say, life has a special meaning to me. As a 17 year old teen, I was ready to end it all. Through life difficulties and dealing with emotional abuse I found myself in a rough spot. I felt like the world didn’t have much to offer. My identity was lost. Through God, basketball and a mentor, my life began to change. God met me with His unconditional grace, gave me new life in Him, surrounded me with a supportive community and allowed me to understand who I am. Now I get the opportunity to share my transformation story, connect with students and be the leader that I needed when I was a teen.

I am passionate about not only sharing my journey but encouraging students/teens and all those I have the opportunity to come into contact with, that there is a better way to live life. I’ve had many opportunities to share at conferences, churches, colleges, high schools and middle schools, what the difference one person can make as they begin to discover who they are. As we focus daily on growing 1% over time we will see that we have become better than the person we were the day before.

P.S. If you are currently in a dark place, or have been through a dark season before, I believe you have connected with this page for a reason. I believe our journey together will allow us to connect, share stories and grow. God has a purpose for you and He invites us all into His story so get ready to walk into your full potential in life. Know that you are loved and valued my friend.

Thank you so much and your proposal was beauitful i hope to experience that one day…

    1. Brittany,

      Thank you for being transparent and open. Continue to pray, seek the Lord, write out your emotions and thoughts. Stay obedient to the Holy Spirit’s promptings. It will never steer you wrong. I pray, God reveals His God given purpose to your spouse. I pray God opens a new light for Him to see the direction he is suppose to walk in.
