I grew up in Baton Rouge and graduated from both LSU and LSU Law School. After living in China for a year, I clerked for a federal judge for three years and then attended Dallas Theological Seminary where I majored in church history. I moved back to Baton Rouge in 2005--just before Hurricane Katrina--and have been pastoring the people of Christ Covenant Church ever since. I met my wife, Lynn, at LSU, and we have been married since 1991 and have five children--Olivia, Elizabeth, Alexander, Andrew and Elliott. I love to read, travel, watch movies, exercise and eat pizza, burgers, chocolate chip cookies and cinnamon rolls.
