Growing up in Kansas my father was a principal and my mother a teacher, so a future serving in education was somewhat inevitable. Being from Kansas, I'm a big KU basketball fan. Go Jayhawks! Since transplanting to Texas, I've come to appreciate good Texas BBQ and will grab any excuse to savor some of that delicious Texas fare.
One of my heart's desires is to see fathers develop to their fullest God-given potential. I have written several books on the topic and have a ministry called Dynamic Dads. Before coming to the Placement office I worked in the Admissions Office and most recently in the Spiritual Formation office. Along with now serving in the Alumni office, I teach a preaching and a media course. I live east of Dallas in Rockwall with my bride, Pam, and five children: Lauren, Austin, Evan, Haley, and Christian.

I graduated from DTS with a Master of Theology degree in 2003, with an emphasis in Pastoral Ministries. As I continue to grow in the my role here, I am praying the kingdom of God will be impacted by actively and progressively reconnecting alumni to the Seminary. I also pray there will be great impact from placing the graduating students and alumni in ministries that please the Lord.
I am also the pastor of Anointed Fellowship Bible Church in Lancaster, Texas where I live with my wife Erika and our three sons. Under my leadership the ministry has grown from just over 40 people, to nearly 300 people.

It’s hard to believe I’ve been at DTS for 23 years (15 with Admissions and now 8 with Alumni). I absolutely LOVE counseling upcoming graduates and alumni as they search for new ministry positions. It’s blessing to see God move our men and women out into places of ministry and service. I especially enjoy encouraging our 2100+ women alumnae in their current ministries. They are fabulous!!
For the past 12 years, I've had the privilege of teaching as an adjunct professor in the Educational Ministries and Leadership department. I appreciate the opportunity to build into the lives of our students!
I am fortunate to have been raised in a wonderful Christian home. I owe so much to my parents for their consistent examples of loving and serving Christ all their lives. Even in their retirement years, they are faithfully serving the Lord. My brother and three sisters are all married and involved in their various churches. Whenever possible, I love spending time with my family and twelve nieces and nephews and five great nieces and nephews! My interests include traveling, writing, reading, crafts, cooking and home improvement projects.
If you asked me what my perfect Saturday would be, I would have to say: being caught up on all my grading so I could either go antiquing with a good friend or stay at home and watch my favorite cooking shows, topped off with a good family-friendly movie.

Hi! If you have any questions concerning the placement process, I’m here to help! I hope your time at DTS has been a wonderful experience for you!
The Lord is using this place to transform lives. What we are learning here is a wonderful tool to help make disciples of all nations; it is a ministry of multiplication. I appreciate how the faculty and staff at DTS are “kingdom minded”—they are genuinely concerned about your development as a believer. Everyone is on the same page, because our goal is to make Jesus known.
I decided to step away from my full-time job so that I could be a full-time student at DTS. It was a hard decision, but I’m so glad I get to learn more about the Lord at a place like this! At one of the first chapels I went to as a student, Chuck Swindoll was speaking and he reminded everyone that the point of seminary was not to gain more knowledge but to love the Lord more. His words have stuck with me and have shaped my time as a student at Dallas Theological Seminary.
