I came to First Wharton as pastor in May 2013. It has been amazing seeing God at work in our church family. I invited Jesus Christ into my heart when I was 13 years old, after my father suffered a near-fatal truck accident. God used that event to show me that I needed Jesus as my Savior and Lord. While attending a revival service at Runge First Baptist Church, God convicted me of my sins, and I received Jesus into my heart. At the age of 15, I felt God calling me to preach.

One of the happiest days of my life was when I married Tammy Pullin, my childhood sweetheart, at the age of 20. Together, we attended Baylor University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. I have previously pastored 3 other churches: Gibtown Baptist Church in Gibtown, TX, Central Baptist Church in Itasca, TX, and First Baptist Church in Ganado, TX. Tammy and I also served in Brazil for 13 ½ years. We have two children and 8 grandchildren.
