Here at First Baptist, music is a major way that we praise and worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! On any given Sunday, we use a variety of instruments--everything from the organ and violin to guitar and drums. We also have a wonderful choir that sings every week in the 8:30 am service and singers who lead in the 11:00 am service. If you are musically gifted and desire to use your talents to bring glory to the Lord in worship, we want to get you plugged in!

1. Worship Choir
2. Composer's Weekend
I became interested in music while talking piano, voice, and cello lessons each week as my father studied music at Southern Seminary.
I have a music education degree from Austin Peay, a church music degree from Kentucky Wesleyan College, and a church music master's from Southern Seminary. Later in life, I felt a calling to public education and returned to school for a degree in curriculum and instruction. I am also certified as a principal in the state of Tennessee.
I've also held church positions in Hopkinsville from 1981-1986 and Cadiz from 1986-2015. I joined FBC in June of 2016.
I live on Lake Barkley with my two companions: Bullet and Phyllis.

Contemporary Worship Leader

1. Contemporary Worship
2. Student Ministry
I've served God's church in various roles, including senior pastor, youth pastor, and worship pastor. I came to FBC in September of 2015 to serve as a student pastor and oversee all 6th-12th grade ministries.
I received a B.S. degree from Murray State in 2007 and I'm currently working on my MDIV seminary degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
I'm married to my beautiful wife and best friend, Jamie. The Lord has blessed us with four wonderful daughters (Halle, Anna Grace, Nora, and Layla). It's my goal at FBC to teach students on how to reach their peers for Christ.
