Justin grew up in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Bristol, Tennessee as the youngest of three boys. He married his gracious and beautiful wife, Sarah, in 2003 and they have a tribe of five boys: Isaac, Ethan, Micah, Malachi, and Titus.

The greatest moment of Justin’s life came at the age of seventeen. After living a filthy, broken, hopeless life as a rebel of God, he was rescued by the immeasurable grace and mercy of God through the completed work of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

Justin began college with the intent to pursue a career in medicine until God made clear His desire for Justin’s vocational service in ministry. He has served as Church Planter, Lead Pastor, Student Pastor, and Middle School and Children’s Director in churches in both Tennessee and North Carolina.

On any given day, Justin can be heard singing Rocky Top as a loyal fan of the University of Tennessee Volunteers. He enjoys sports, biking with his family, roller coasters, and classic cars, especially Mustangs.
