I was born to a 17-year old unwed mother and lived in various neighborhoods in and around Baltimore City. I’m more blessed than I deserve and I’m thankful for everything God has sent my way. My greatest blessings are my beautiful bride Kristy and my two children, Caleb and Ainsley.

I’m fortunate to have been the first in my family tree to graduate High School for several generations. The gift of college and a graduate program were blessings beyond most expectations placed on my life. My undergraduate degree in government was focused in law and my graduate studies are in the area of Christian leadership.

I’m a faith-filled follower of Christ who is audacious enough to actually believe that there is a God who loves everyone and I believe that you have inherant value because beneath your brokenness you are made in the image of God. I also believe that a life given over to following Christ as Lord and Savior is a life that is fulfilled and complete.

My prayer for the city of Baltimore is that men and women, young and old, rich and poor will all come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and experience new life in Him. Ephesians 2 declares that everyone was created to do something great. 2 Corinthians 5 says that in living out life we’re called to be representatives of Christ’s mission to love the world. My passion is to help you find where you shine. At Captivate there is an entire church ready to walk beside you to help you become all that God has created you to be.

Please take this as my personal invitation to join us as we build a great church here in Baltimore! Welcome to Captivate Church. Welcome to a life giving church!
