markWhat is His Background?

Like so many, I was born at an early age. Raised in the sleepy college town of Murray, KY, I grew up a happy fellow, interested in basketball, Nintendo, and church. I found God God found me as a young boy, and as mystical as it sounds I really believe God called me to be a preacher. After High School, I went to Murray State University and got a degree in English Literature, and then got an M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary. I am married to Jackie, and I have three kids, Katie, Carson, and Anna.
