Preaching Minister
 

I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX, and grew up at the Sunset Ridge Church of Christ. I attended college at the University of Texas at Austin and did my graduate work at Abilene Christian University. It was in Abilene where I met my beautiful wife, Kaley, and we were married in November of 1998. Two of my favorite things in life are being the husband of an amazing and talented woman, and the father of two wonderfully precocious and fun-loving children, Gabe and Hallie.

 

We’ve lived in Austin, TX, for the past 12 years, loving and serving our church family and campus ministry at the University Avenue Church of Christ, located right on the edge of the campus of the University. We were blessed to work with such a wonderful family of Christian men and women there at UA, we will always have a little of that Austin “weirdness” as a part of who we are!

We love to read, travel, play baseball, listen to music, and eat, not necessarily in that order. We’ve already begun our quest in Lubbock to find the best hamburger, pizza, pasta, taco, and barbeque — we’re open to recommendations! I am an avid runner (it’s a great way to get to know a city) so you may see me out and about around Lubbock, please feel free to honk and wave! We’re blessed to call Broadway our new home, we’re excited about the rich history of loving and serving here, and we’re hopeful about all that God has in store for Broadway in the years ahead!
