My family and I are blessed to serve here at Lakewood Baptist Church. My wife, Paige and I have been married for 18 years and have two children, Jordan (age 20) and Colt (age 16) . I am a Columbus native and Paige is from Phenix City, and we currently live on the North side of Columbus. I have been doing student ministry for over 18 years, all in the Columbus-Phenix City area. Prior to Lakewood, I most recently served at my home church of Edgewood Baptist in Columbus, where I made Jesus both Savior and Lord of my life and was baptized at age 7. My goal for Lakewood's student ministry is to challenge students to accept Jesus as Savior and Lord and to help them display Christ’s love to all those around them. I encourage students to be REAL, not wear masks, not follow, but set the pace and lead others. I would love the opportunity to invest in your life, come join us!
