I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. I came to know the Lord in 1977 and felt called into vocational student ministry in 1986. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Missy Grubbs, since 1990 and have had the joy of partnering with her to raise our four sons and more recently minister to our two godchildren.

My family and I have lived in Pinellas County for the last seven years. We have had the privilege of serving in student ministry at Seminole First Baptist Church and with Keswick Christian School.

Recently God opened the door for me to join the staff of FCA and begin leading this ministry throughout our county. It is a huge blessing to partner with our board and staff to work inside the sports world to see young people, coaches and all they influence come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior.

Born and raised in Pinellas Co., I take great pride in serving this community. Graduating from Dunedin High School, baseball has always been my passion; and with 16 years of youth ministry, including 5 years with FCA, mentoring teens and coaches has been a driving force to serve the Lord.
 I have been happily married to my wife Stacey, who helped lead me to Jesus, for 23 years. We have two wonderful children; Brendan (20) and Kylie (9).

Gal. 2:20 ~ " I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

I was born and raised in Charlotte North Carolina. Some of my best memories during those years were of playing basketball, and cheerleading through various youth leagues. I consider myself very fortunate to have grown in the knowledge of Christ during my childhood.

I have enjoyed living in the Tampa Bay area for a total of 18 years, and now reside in Pinellas County with my son, and parents living close by.

Some of my greatest blessings have been raising my three beautiful children, and mentoring youth within Pinellas County. Sharing Christ and his love has always been a real joy for me. I consider it an honor and pleasure to continue working with youth, and our community through Fellowship Christian Athletes.

With an evangelistic heart and a desire to disciple people of all ages, I have spent the 15 years serving college students in the Tampa Bay area at the University of South Florida. During that time, I was on staff with CRU and Athletes in Action (AIA) and for the past 3 years I served as a pastor to young professionals. My wife Leaha and I have been married for 17 years and currently live in St. Petersburg Florida with our daughters Makenna and Janessa. My wife and I spent a year living on Capitol Hill in D.C. serving as Church Planters in Residence at National Community Church. I have a calling to minister to coaches and athletes and have served as an Olympic chaplain at the last three Olympic Games. I have a heart to reach High School Coaches and students through Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). “Encouraging,” “motivational,” “passionate” and “shepherding” are just a few words that describe what I seek to be in ministry. With the same heart and desire I had to reach college students and pro athletes I will bring that same tenacity to the High School level.
