Minister to Senior Adults


Before coming to First Baptist as the Minister to Senior Adults, I served as the pastor of three churches across North Carolina over the last 36 years.  My wife, ENan and I returned to Wilmington, my home town, several years ago to continue our ministry.  We share a deep passion and heart for missions and love serving others. We enjoy walking on the beach, visiting with grandchildren, traveling to new places, and hosting friends on our back porch.

Fun Facts

Education: Davidson College, B.A.; Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, M.Div. and Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary, D.Min. in Marriage and Family Studies.

A scripture that is meaningful to me: Ephesians 2.8-9 says “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.”

My favorite restaurant in Wilmington is . . . You just can’t beat $1 tacos at Islands Grill.

My favorite vacation destination is . . . anywhere with sand, salt water and family.
