He serves as senior pastor at FBC Theodore and we appreciate the church sharing him with us during this season.

His previous role as an Area Representative for the Office of Sunday School and Discipleship Training through the Alabama State Board of Missions, serves as a foundation to provide consultation and training for multiple churches. Areas of consultation and training include programs such as VBS, Sunday School, Bible Drill, Men’s Ministry, and Senior Adults.

His Doctorate of Ministry, reviewed various revitalization plans and church plant strategies. His expertise in helping the churches and the busy ministers connect with their people through technology results in stronger relationships for the church. Healthier churches build stronger associations.

Impact Mobile Associational Missions Offering


Cooperative missions is an important Southern Baptist distinctive that is often not understood in our pews. Please invite one of the MBA staff to set up a display in your church, or to speak anytime during the year.

The Impact Mobile offering provides an opportunity for churches that may not have financially supported cooperative missions in their Jerusalem as much as they would have liked. It also assists those churches who use regular special offerings as their primary means to raise missions support. We are grateful for the churches that provide a portion of their missions tithe through the budget, and understand those churches may choose not to promote this offering. This is an “above the tithe” missions offering to assist the ministries and emphases of the MBA to make an eternal difference in Mobile County. Your sacrificial missions tithes allow us to provide MBA sponsored trainings and consultations to dozens of pastors, staff and members about every aspect of growing, maintaining and managing a church. Please consider participating in the “Impact Mobile Associational Missions Offering.”
