I grew up in Saint Petersburg, Florida. I was raised with four brothers and no sisters. At the age of five my parents put me into football. For the next seventeen years, I’d play football every year without missing one. Football would eventually earn me a scholarship to play at the collegiate level where I attended Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan, pursuing a Bachelors in Human Resources Management.

During my time in college, I would experience things I had never got the chance to experience while I was home. For some time it was fine and fun, until I was confronted by a friend from home with the message of the gospel. I had professed to be a believer my entire life but I had never truly known the Lord. After much success in college, my junior year would come where I’d go through one of the darkest times in my life, but by God’s grace, this same dark time would eventually lead me to the One who brought me out of it.

While still in college, I had a passion for ministry. I would serve where I could and be a part of any group that was preaching solid theology on campus. I moved back home to Florida just before COVID got bad and I started attending BLDG28 regularly. After some time of serving, I got the opportunity to come on staff as a Student Ministry Resident and I’ve loved it since. I’m excited for BLDG28 and for what the Lord is doing here!

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 6:23
