The Lord directs us in mysterious ways, Isaiah 55:8-9. As a believer God directs our path, and crafts our experience for future service for Him. As I look back on my life I remember important events. Every event, encounter with people, every friend, all have an impact on what we can do for Christ; if we allow Him to use those experiences.
I studied Broadcast Communications while attending Pensacola Christian College where I received my Bachelors degree. While at PCC I met my wonderful wife, Danae. We both graduated and were married the same year. I went on to receive my MBA in Marketing at a University in Tucson Arizona. God was crafting my experience and directing my path to become a servant for Him. The Mars Hill Network is where God directed my path. I’m able to use my talents and my education to communicate encouragement and the gospel of Jesus Christ, daily. What an amazing privilege to come to work every day and reach so many people with The Word of God.
My prayer is continued service alongside my wife Danae, my daughter Adonia, and my son Phil IV.
