Following my family’s long standing example of faith in God, I became a 5th generation member of the Lord’s church at 37th St. Church of Christ in Omaha, Nebraska as a teenager.
I have always had a strong desire to be a worker in the Lord’s church, and have always had an affinity for working in the area of finance. This began at 37th St. where I was the youth treasurer, with the responsibility of taking up a weekly collection, counting it and presenting monthly financial position reports to the congregation. That interest grew over time and it led me to pursue a degree in accounting from Southern University in Baton Rouge, La. Upon graduation in 1988, I moved to Atlanta and shortly thereafter began worshiping with the saints here at West End.
My inspiration is the parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14-30. I never want to think of my talents as being buried or underutilized. At the end of the day, I would like for my talents to be maximized to their greatest potential and for God to receive the glory. The minister and elders at West End have always provided me that opportunity in a great many ways over the years. For that reason, it is an honor to serve the Lord as a deacon at West End along with my wife, Kesha and son, Connor.
