I was born in Robinson, but because my father was in the oil business, I’ve lived in Texas almost all my life.  I was raised in a loving Catholic family with six brothers and sisters but in college and my young adulthood, I faded away from being a true practicing Christian. Being a Club Golf Professional will keep you busy seven days a week! 

Once my wife Nancy and young daughter Chelsea, moved back to Coppell in January 1992, we started looking for a loving and friendly church.  Some old friends invited us to dinner one Saturday night and to their church, Metrocrest Community Church (MCC), that Sunday morning.  We have been members of this loving church for 29 years!


MCC is a loving Community where we want to help show God’s loving grace and mercy! This has been shown to me and my family many times over the years, in and outside our church!  Come and join our Community in worshipping our God and Savior!

I’m fortunate to lead MCC’s journey with Dave Ramsey and Financial Peace University. For 15 years this program has helped both members of our church and visitors, to free themselves from the chains of debt! One of my great joys is seeing couples come together and devise a money plan that they both buy into. Their plan leads them out of debt and into becoming outrageous givers of their time and money!

A favorite verse of mine in the bible, is John 15:5, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
