Are there any interesting facts about yourself that you would like to share with new or current Point students?
I have been married to my amazing wife, Nancy, for over twenty years. We have two sons, Morgan and Wyatt.

After high school, I served in the U.S. Cavalry for almost seven years. After the Army, I served as a patrol officer and police detective for the Toccoa Police Department and the University of Georgia Police Department. I owned and operated a small business franchise while in seminary, and finally, served as a pastor and church planter before coming to Point University full-time.
