The Struggle is Real, But The Victory is Ours!

Are you doing battle today? Be encouraged and stand strong! The enemy is very real church… BUT in Christ you’re fighting FROM victory, not for it. Let Him know!!!

For we do NOT wrestle against flesh and blood, BUT against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. – Ephesians 6:12

The devil was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a LIAR and the father of LIES. – John 8:44

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, SEEKING someone to devour. – 1 Peter 5:8

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I (Jesus) came that they may have life and have it abundantly. – John 10:10

Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is GREATER than he who is in the world. – 1 John 4:4

SUBMIT yourselves therefore to GOD. RESIST the devil, and he WILL FLEE from you. – James 4:7

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.
