Trail Life Troop Master #3579 –
I was born in Garland, Texas and lived at the same house until I was 18 years old. For 2 years, I attended TJC and I had 2 more years at UT-Arlington. I studied engineering, but decided to keep working for my dad as a structural steel draftsman. I worked for him from 1995-2015, at which time I started my own company.
I may be self-employed, and my own sole employee, but my wife helps me with the books. My wife’s name is Holly, and we were married in 2000. We have three kids: Katie, Ben & Jonathan…all young teens. Holly homeschools all three kids, and has more or less since 2013. Up until 2016, we lived in Forney, Texas, when we started designing and building our new place between Van & Grand Saline. We finished our house in January, 2017.
Even from our first Sunday at CCF in October, 2016, we knew we were where God placed us. We were immediately welcomed, and immediately loved. CCF has been a blessing for our family, and we want to be a part of what CCF is doing in the area. I have enjoyed working sound at church, as far back as my teens, and I am extremely happy I am able to be an extra pair of hands.
Scripture: Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”
