Born and raised in the great city of Santa Fe! We started coming to Alta Loma when was about six years old. Fast forward a bit and I was saved at the age of eight at a Power Team conferenece when I realized I was a sinner in need of a savior. After that, God began his work in my life molding me into who he wanted me to be. I've never been a procrastinator, and as a result I had my whole life planned out at the age of thirteen. I was so excited about my decision that I came to Sunday School and told my youth pastor what I wanted to do with my life. Little did I know that just down the hall, my Junior High Sunday School teacher was waiting to give a message that she had prepared from Jeremiah 29:11 about God's plans for our life. It still hadn't hit me at that point. Later on that year I found myself on a mission trip in Mexico where God opened my eyes up to our great need in this world, and I thought, "Maybe God does have a unique plan for me?" It took until my senior year in high school until I finally understood that he was calling me into his ministry. So I changed my plans just a couple of months before I graduated and immediately started serving as the Interim Youth Pastor. After a year in community college I transfered to East Texas Baptist University where I majored in Religion with a minor in Youth Education and graduated in 2011. By God's grace we were able to return home where he has continued to bless ever since.
Of all the plans I had made, the only one that really came into place was marrying my wife, Laurin in the summer of 2009. I had determined that as a ten year old boy that she was going to be the woman I was going to spend the rest of my life with. Now, God's given us a beautiful little girl named Kaizley Cole, born in the summer of 2014. We sure are one blessed family, and happy to be a part of this great family of God at First Baptist Church of Alta Loma.
