I am a native Houstonian. My wife is a native Houstonain! My parents are native Houstonians too! I love this town!
I grew up in the Historic Houston Heights. At about 10 years of age, we moved out to Northwest Houston and I have lived out here ever since.
I attended Trinity Messiah Lutheran School from 1st – 8th grade. For high school, I started out at The High School for Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice (a magnet school). After my Sophomore year, I realized I didn’t want to be a lawyer. I transferred to my home school and graduated from Scarborough High School in 1990.
I consider myself a spiritual mutt. I’ve always been in church, but the church I consider the church I grew up in (spiritually) was called Christian Life Ministries. It was here where I met my wife and was called to the ministry.
I attended Houston Baptist University and majored in religion/Christianity. At HBU, everyone is a dual major, so I also majored in Communications/Mass Media with an emphasis in TV production and journalism.
Belinda and I eloped on October 11, 1991. I was glad when a few months passed and every one at church knew we didn’t get married because “we had to.” (You know how people are!)
Belinda and I ran a group home for kids in Children’s Protective Custody for 11 1/2 years. We were very young, but God moved in some very cool ways to allow us to help kids for so long.

Belinda and I have been married for 23 years. We have 3 boys, 1 foster daughter, 1 foster son-in-law 😉 and 2 foster-grandsons….oh and a dog and 2 chickens!
