Video

My wife, Mattie, and I moved to Waco from Frisco, Texas, where I spent the past year working on the Social Media Content team for the Professional Bull Riders. In my new role at Harris Creek, I will be creating content on the video team, hoping to reach those here in Waco and send the gospel to folks across the world on social media! In my free time, I enjoy watching Oklahoma Football, DIY-ing furniture, and playing disc golf.

Young Adults

Before moving to Waco, I was in Branson, Missouri working at a faith-based Gap Year program called Link year, while helping run a young adult ministry. I moved back to Dallas this summer and married my wife and best friend in October. At Harris Creek, I will help run the Young Adults ministry. I am so excited to see God move in the lives of Young Adults in this community and for the name of Jesus to be glorified thought people in their 20’s and 30’s. In my free time, I love hanging out with friends, watching movies, going to sports events, playing basketball, dating my wife, and telling people the Gospel of Jesus that changed my life.
