In 1988, I started on a journey in the United States Navy. I was married shortly after I joined and my wife Kelly and I have moved nine times during my career. In 2010 I was selected to Master Chief and one year later became a Command Master Chief. This was the pinnacle moment in my Navy career and I thought I had it all.
I attained the highest possible rank
leading thousands of sailors and traveling the world…
but something was still missing.
In 2013 we made our final Navy move back to Fort Worth. We began looking for a church to attend and we finally discovered Milestone about four months ago. As we visited, it was apparent that this was the church for us and I truly felt something drawing me in as soon as I entered. I then attended all three days of Prepare 2018. Each night at Prepare I felt like God was pulling me closer and I finally surrendered my life to Him. It was the true pinnacle of my life! We attended Discovery 101 and Serve Team 201 and then joined a Small Group, and now I volunteer on our Parking Team!
My wife, Kelly, was instrumental in leading me to Christ. She has a very close relationship with Jesus and I have always admired that. I also have a co-worker who encouraged me to surrender my life to Jesus. It’s so clear to me now that the one thing that was missing in my life was Jesus Christ. On January 28th I decided to take my next step and I was baptized as a fully committed follower of Jesus!
