Youth Director

As a child, my family moved around a lot. I came to know Christ as my savior when I was twelve years old at a youth camp in Buffalo Gap, TX. We came to Wharton when I was a freshman in high school. I graduated from Wharton High School in 1981. It was there, as a junior, that I met the love of my life, Tessa. We were married the January after we graduated high school. We were blessed with three children and now have seven grandchildren.

Shortly after graduation we moved away from Wharton for a number of years. We moved back to Wharton in 1998. I began volunteering with the youth ministry of First Baptist church around 1999; first as someone who hung out with the students, played basketball with them, and was a chaperone on many trips. I gradually became more and more involved in the ministry; so much so that the Youth Pastor at that time began introducing me as his Associate Youth Pastor. When that Youth Pastor left in 2003, I became the de-facto Volunteer Youth Director. I served in that capacity for approximately two years when the church decided to hire a Part-Time Youth Director. I continued working with the youth ministry assisting the new Director until he left in 2007. I again became the de-facto Volunteer Youth Director. In 2012, the church made the decision to put me on as staff and I became the official Youth Director for First Baptist Church of Wharton, TX.

Our youth ministry seeks to serve the students of our community. We provide them with a place of safety, caring, and spiritual support. The church is very supportive of the youth ministry and gives to the ministry in a variety of ways. Our purpose is to bring young people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and then, to help them grow in their relationship with Him.
