God’s Dreams

Our dreams aren’t always the same as God’s dreams for us. There are times I’ve had to adjust my plans kicking and screaming. The road I had chosen looked a lot cooler and easier and was also a lot more about me. There are times it has taken longer for me to see clearly because what I pictured for myself wasn’t in the heart of God but was lodged in my own. Sometimes our desires have to be transformed and redeemed by God. Only when I’ve bowed my knee to His will have I been able to delight in that which he’s planned for me. Join me as I put my knee to the floor again today?

“Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act.” – Psalm 37:4-5

I serve as the lead Pastor of the Haven Community Church. My wife Courtney and I have two children, Zane and Daxton. I love reading, writing, graphic design, and pretty much all things creative. Bring up the topic of sports and you’ve got a friend for life. I also love to teach and preach God’s Word to anyone who will listen. I strive to be a constant learner as well, understanding that education isn’t something that we receive, but rather a lifelong journey. Above all, I strive to be a friend to those around me, seeking to be a light for Christ despite my own shortcomings.
I have a BFA at Stephen F. Austin State University and a MA in Christian Leadership at Luther Rice Seminary. Prior to establishing The Haven in 2012, I have served as a pastor at Life Spring Church and an elder at Freedom Fellowship Church. In addition to pastoring the Haven, I serve on the board for Relationships for Christ Ministries, a missions organization working in Africa and Latin America.
