I am an ordained pastor with The North American Lutheran Church. Currently, I serve as the lead pastor of First Evangelical Lutheran Church of Gray Manor a congregation of The North American Lutheran Church. I hold degrees from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, Lincoln Christian University, United Theological Seminary, and am currently enrolled at The Institute of Lutheran Theology where I plan to complete my Doctor of Ministry degree in Evangelism and Apologetics in 2020. Prior to First Lutheran, I served as a church planter and mission developer in West Palm Beach, Florida.
