Favorite attributes of God:

Although that is a difficult question to answer, I would have to say that the grace of God is an attribute that continues to blow me away and bring me to my knees in humility.

Favorite thing about being a husband:

It is a joy to serve alongside a women who shares in your same passions and desires for ministry. To see the young generation reached and discipled for Jesus is what brought us together.

Favorite thing about being a father:

Although I feel the great weight and responsibility of leading my son to love Jesus. The opportunity to exercise consistent grace in a way that accurately portrays God’s heart for us is a challenge I’m excited to embrace.

Biggest hoy of being an elder:

Having the responsibility to help create a culture that embraces God’s church as the family it truly is. Watching people connect, stay connected and embrace family warms my heart.

Why do you love Wilson FBC?

This is my family. After moving from Scotland in 2008, I moved to a small country church that has walked through the majority of my 20s with me. They have been through all my major seasons of life with me.
