About Me

My Background
I am married to the lovely Robin.  We have 5 children ranging from infants to teenagers.  I attended the University of Arkansas and Dallas Theological Seminary.

Why I Follow Christ
Because He loved me and gave Himself for me, all while I’m a sinner.  There is no greater love!

Ask me about
Anything sports related (especially college sports and more specifically, the Razorbacks), and anything about my kids.


First Baptist Church of Richmond Hill, Georgia is a thriving and diverse community of real people who believe in reaching people for Christ whether they are next door, in another country, or on military deployment.We are a group of people who join together for worship, build relationships within our community, and give our time and resources in service to others.

We have all types of people here. Our church is made up of civilians as well as Soldiers from around the Richmond Hill area and nearby Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield. We are real people who, just like you, are dealing with life's real issues.

But we also do life together by spending time with each other and sharing our burdens.  We also have lots of fun! If you are seeking a purpose and meaning for your life, come and join us as you are, no strings attached, and experience all that God has in store for you!

Sundays are a time where we gather together to grow and give of what we have, interact with others in a casual, welcoming atmosphere, and enjoy a worship service filled with dynamic music and relevant teaching. Stop by and visit us this Sunday.

We are people who want to share the love of Jesus Christ with everyone, and that includes you. We have multiple Life Groups where people come together in a group and share their lives.

We offer you a way to see inside our vision, doctrine and where you fit in with the First Baptist Richmond Hill family through our Discover First Baptist seminars.  These are three one hour sessions help at 10:10 AM Sunday mornings held every couple of months.  

We want to be the church every day of the week and we want to meet the needs of those in our community and around the world. We work to show God's love in practical ways.
