After receiving my degree from Mississippi State, I started coaching high school football. One summer, God called an audible and led me to preach. Darlene and I prayed and felt that this was His will. I resigned my coaching position and moved our family to New Orleans where I received a MDIV and a DMin degree. I have pastored churches in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee. When God brought us here, He directed me to provide spiritual leadership, to preach His Word, to minister to the hurting, and to challenge the Body to make a difference for His kingdom.
