My Pursuit

“And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” – Mark 16:15

Dear friend,

Tuesday, June 28, 2005 was a day that changed my life. I was 13 years old at a youth conference called Branded by Fire in Pensacola, Florida. I responded to an altar call and was standing in the front of the sanctuary when the conference speaker pointed at me and said, “you young man; come up here.” I walked up the stairs and met him on the stage where his next words to me were “you have a great destiny and great purpose.” It was on this day that I was called into ministry. I’ve grown from the 13-year-old boy who was called into ministry to the 22 year old about to step into the call of God.

I graduated in December 2014 with a B.S. in Health Services Administration and will begin working on a Master of Divinity degree at Southeastern University in January 2015. Coupled with my education, I will be serving at Seacoast Church in Charleston, South Carolina ( where I believe God will equip me with the skills and experience needed for what He is calling me to do. I plan on serving in the youth ministry on a weekly basis leading a small group and hopefully progressing into an internship position. I also plan on going through the Clinical Pastoral Education program at Roper St. Francis Hospital where I can apply my undergraduate degree and minister to the sick in a “student” chaplaincy role.

I ask in this letter that you pray and consider supporting me financially as I pursue the call of God on my life. While I will be working in Charleston, the price of my Master of Divinity degree is $35,000 and a $30 monthly gift would go a long way in paying for my education. For more information on how to support me, please email me at Thank you for your contribution and may God bless you greatly in 2015.
