I’ve had the honor of serving as Legacy’s Lead Pastor since 2013. Long before we moved to this area, Legacy Church was known for their warmth, their kindness, their single-minded love for Jesus, and their excitement to participate in God’s mission. They have a rich history of community involvement and valuing people. Today, our church is pulsing with growth and new life!
My wife, Lindsey, and I grew up together in DeSoto and went to college at HSU in Abilene. We married in 2003, and have four daughters: Elizabeth (b. ‘09), Claire (b. ‘11), Jessa (b. '15), and Kate (b. '19). I enjoy drawing and painting with my kids, encouraging their creativity, and learning from them as they learn about life. I'm a passionate NBA fan, a movie nerd, and I love reading (yet rarely finishing) books of all kinds.
God has given me wonderful opportunities to grow and serve in local churches for over 20 years. I'm incredibly grateful to serve Legacy, alongside amazing friends and teammates. Our staff and leaders constantly display the grace and truth of Jesus, and they give so much of themselves to help others find their IDENTITY in Jesus and their place in His MISSION to IMPACT the world through the gospel. My hope is that for years to come, Legacy will be a special people in this community; a church that is truly alive with the gospel!
