Who am I?


I am a pastor, husband, father/dance dad, coach, speaker, writer, teacher, and mentor. Currently, I work full-time as pastor of Faith Family Worship Center in Palm City, Florida.


Why I do this?


Years ago, I coined a phrase, “You’ve got to give up good to have better.”  As a Pastor, I have always wanted to help people become better spouses, parents, leaders, and more.  I've always wanted to help support churches to discover how they can realize their full potential.  That's why I created this website and added blogs/podcasts that will offer encouragements and opportunities for you to discover your "BETTER." 

What can I do for you?

My life experiences more than qualify me to coach, write, encourage, teach, and lead others. As a family man, businessman, and leader, I understand the value of communicating the vision with integrity and determination. The GRIT that I have developed to ”see things through” has been a hallmark quality of my life, family, and marriage. It has let me sharpen my creative and leadership skills, whether in a crisis, start-up ventures, or organizational restructuring.
