Youth Pastor

 Having served in the background of churches for many years, the Lord fulfilled His promise of calling me to be a youth pastor. I was called to serve as the youth pastor for Indian Hills Baptist Church in December 2018. I am currently in the process of attending school to obtain a higher education in biblical studies and student ministry. While serving in ministry God brought forth to me my beautiful bride Brittany who serves beside me in both ministry and way of life. Together we have been called to serve wholeheartedly to the Lord and fulfill the promise of Matthew 28:19-20.
