In his own words:

"I am just a lost sinner saved by God's grace. There is nothing good in me that would lead God to save me. But, amazingly, He did purely out of his grace and love. I am thankful for the blood of Jesus that covers my sin. My hope is that the Gospel - the Good News of Jesus - will permeate this city and lives will be changed as we, the church, invest our selves here through strategic missions. Then, I hope the Gospel goes from Carbon Hill all throughout this county, state, nation, and world. We have big dreams - but we also have a big God!
