He graduated with a B.S. in Social Work from Ball State University and pursued a Masters of Divinity degree at Emmanuel School of Religion (now called Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan) in Johnson City, Tennessee.

He then was called to become the Director of Campus Christian Fellowship at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina where he continues to serve.
