Lead Pastor

I grew up in High Point, NC. God called me to full time ministry as a junior in high school in the summer of 1990. I graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with a degree in Youth Ministry. I married Ashley a month after graduating from college and began serving as a youth pastor in Thomasville, NC. We have 3 children, Allyson Claire 16, Caleb Eric 15, and Anna Kate 12.

Our family moved to Wilmington in July of 2008 to explore where God would have us to plant Crosswinds and in March of 2009 launched in Leland, NC. We are excited and humbled by what God is doing and look forward to many great days ahead.
