My hope for TMC is that we would be a people whose affections and faith are entirely placed in Jesus. I pray we would be a people who are captivated by Him and in response we spend our lives sharing Him everywhere we go. I also hope we are the type of church where no one feels alone and everyone knows they matter.
I was born and raised in Middle Tennessee. Which also means I was born and raised in the church. Like any kid who was raised in church, I assumed my faith in Jesus. Growing up I was pretty shy and this was emphasized when we moved to Hendersonville, TN. I knew no one and wanted nothing to do with any of it. I truly became a loner.
My family had started attending a large church at this time as well. I would routinely sneak out simply because I was tired of being alone. Then through the kindness of a peer in the youth group I was invited to go play putt putt golf. For the first time in a long time I felt like I mattered. Shortly there after God wrecked me when He showed me that He saw me. I passionately fell in love with Jesus at that time and the gospel has only grown in depth and breadth since then.
Soon there after I sensed the call to ministry and have been a part of it ever since then. I served as a youth minister for over a decade before my wife I decided to plant TMC. TMC has been a beautiful and difficult journey and we are so thankful for it. We truly love welcoming people into our lives as the gospel is at work in us all.
God has been so kind to our family in giving us our three daughters; Kate, Kenzie and Karter. They mean everything to us and I couldn’t be more proud of them.
