Senior Pastor

It is such a gift to be the pastor of Hawthorne Lane United Methodist Church. I am passionate about the church being a place where everyone is welcome and included and I would love to get to know you. I love listening to folk and americana music, playing golf and guitar (not well), being outdoors, and spending time with friends. Growing up in rural and small towns, I will always be adjusting to city life. My wife, Meredith, is a Deacon in the United Methodist Church, and a social worker. We have two daughters who love being silly.

I earned a bachelor’s degree from Wofford College (Go Terriers!) and a Master of Divinity Degree from Duke University (Go Blue Devils!)
