Growing up in the small fishing village of Louisburg, Nova Scotia along with my parents and seven siblings I never imagined that God could use me. I grew up in church but didn’t make a commitment to the Lord until age 23 when He delivered me from a life of drug abuse. Jesus Christ radically changed my life!

I immediately felt an urgency to help others trapped in lives of depravity and addiction. This led me into a calling to full time ministry. God began opening doors for me to share my testimony during street evangelism and outreach situations in which Christ was able to make an impact on the lives of troubled teens that shared my previous addictions to drugs and alcohol. My work with street kids eventually led to me being promoted to a position of Provincial Youth Director over the whole Canadian Maritime Provinces through the Church of God.

While serving as an international Evangelist in 1994, after much prayer and fasting, my wife and I left our home and moved to the United States where I served the East Calhoun Church of God as Youth Pastor, Administrative Pastor and Worship Leader. We have been blessed to be a part of many revivals and outpourings of God’s presence with manifestations of supernatural healings, deliverance and salvation.

In 2000 God called us once again into another level of ministry when my family and I became the Senior Pastors of Covenant Life. For thirteen years we have seen God change and transform many lives and move in dynamic ways as we have responded with faith to His call. My desire is that Covenant be a dynamic, multi-cultural church that burns with a passion to reach this generation by any means necessary.

My wife Darlene, son Noah, daughter Abbey and I love living in beautiful Ringgold, Georgia.

Raised in a wonderful, loving, God-centered home I heard the call into ministry at a young age while attending a Christian University. Upon entering full-time youth ministry my life began an adventure that has spanned many states and roles in the Kingdom. I have a deep sincere passion to serve the Body of Christ in any way possible. I began serving with Pastor Chant at Covenant Life after enjoying a fruitful friendship with him and connecting my heart with his vision for the Body of Christ has been a true joy. My wife, Kristen, and I have made our home in Ringgold, Georgia with our amazing son, Sawyer.

Momentum Youth Pastor/Worship Pastor

My spiritual journey began as a young thirteen year old who on November 26th, 1995 had a radical life change when I game my heart to Christ. Leading worship and preaching the Word of God at a young age led me into a friendship with Pastor Chant in which I joined him in full time ministry at Covenant Life. For twelve years God has amazed me over and over again with his ability to connect hurting people to a Healing Savior. My wife, Jessica, and I are blessed to call Ringgold, Georgia our home with our beautiful baby boy, Peyton.

God turned my life around in 1981 when I invited Christ into my life. He has blessed me with a wonderful wife, Lisa, two children, Jon and Cynthia, and three beautiful grandchildren. After spending over 35 years in Northern California, where we served in many capacities such as Youth Pastor and Children’s Ministry Leaders we moved to the Chattanooga area when I accepted a full time position at J103 as their Special Project and Public Relations Manager. In July of 2011 I accepted God’s call to full time ministry here at Covenant Life. Lisa and I have made our home in Lafayette, Georgia where we enjoy traveling, sports, horses and spending time with family and friends.

Born in Moncton, New Brunswick my family and I moved to the United States when I was a small child. Being a Senior Pastor’s son has given me a unique perspective into the life of ministry. Answering the call into full time ministry in the fall of 2012 was a moment of awakening for me and I have discovered a new level of fulfillment in my relationship with the Lord. As a young minister, with an eager heart to see God move and lives changed, I am honored to now share my own gifts and callings with the Body of Christ.

info:
As a Pastor’s son I came to know the Lord at an early age. During my teen and young adult years I led many Bible studies and youth prayer meetings in schools and local churches. I find fulfillment in challenging and training youth to walk in their full potential in the Lord.

Carol came to know the Lord at age 30. She works with girls and women of all ages ministering the love of God in their lives and challenging them to see themselves as God sees them. Together we enjoy working with local prison ministry along with multiple missionary trips to Africa and Europe.
