Millennial Moment

Where do you call home?

I am from Sulphur Springs, Tx but I am currently in living in Dallas.

What do you do for a career?

I am currently a Missions Specialist for the Texas Baptists General Convention. 

Do you serve in your church?

I am currently the Pastor of West End Church in Dallas, TX.

What motivates you to serve?

The Love of God for me is what motivates me to serve.  My church and I predominantly serve the homeless of downtown Dallas; we are compelled to love others not simply by understanding their suffering, but rather because we have a vision of what the world could be.

What words of wisdom or inspiration would you pass to millennials?

I would encourage Millennials to find their purpose, their reason for living, and pursue it wholeheartedly.  We were all created for a reason, and we are most alive when we are fulfilling our calling.  I would also encourage them to see everyone as an untapped resource.  Every one we see has the potential to be our teammate; we have to find in them the value they intrinsically possess.

What bible verse has influenced you the most and why?

2 corinthians 6:10 – sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.
When we are in Christ, He redefines our identity.  Regardless of what the world may ascribe us to be,  we are complete in Him.

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”
