My Story

I was born and raised in Bryant, Arkansas right outside of Little Rock. I grew up going to church every Sunday but didn’t truly recognize the depths of my sin and my need of a savior until my latter years of college. Throughout college I struggled with finding my identity, transferring to 3 different schools. I eventually landed at the University of Central Arkansas and there I met one of my best friends, Ben Rowell, who introduced me to Young Life. Through Young Life I learned what it meant to cultivate discipleship relationships, live in authentic community, and ultimately find my true identity in Jesus Christ. 

I graduated from the University of Central Arkansas with a Bachelors in Digital Filmmaking and a minor in Studio Art. I never thought The Lord would lead me out of the great state of Arkansas but I ended up with a job right outside Memphis in Olive Branch, Mississippi. Harvest was the first church I tried after moving to Memphis and it has been one of the best churches I have ever been a part of. I volunteered doing videos and graphic design at Harvest for 2 years until coming on staff full time. I am married to my beautiful wife Riley. We live in East Memphis, and we have a dog named Scout (no kids yet). We are big Razorback fans and even bigger Grizzlies fans. I love basketball, indie movies, instrumental music, Settlers of Catan, and Brother Junipers omelets. I am a firm believer that Memphis is the best food city in the country.

My Hope For Harvest

My hope for Harvest is that we would live with an eternal perspective, bringing forth the gospel to the lost and broken every day. That we would continue to be a disciple making church, raising up mature believers of Jesus Christ for the glory of God.
