A Word From Your Pastor …

Thank you for journeying with me through our current series, “In the Beginning:
A Study of Genesis 1-11”. As we walk through these vital passages together, it
becomes evident that science and faith are not in contradiction to each other but
complement each other beautifully. Check out the following quotes from Nobel
Laureates and pioneers in science compiled by Javier Ordovas.
Nicolaus Copernicus (16th century), astronomer and the first in-depth proponent of
heliocentrism: "Who could live in close contact with the most consummate order and
divine wisdom and not feel drawn to the loftiest aspirations? Who could not adore the
architect of all these things?"

Carl Linnaeus (18th century), founder of systematic botany: "I have seen the eternal,
infinite, omniscient, omnipotent God pass close by, and I knelt prostrate in adoration."
Thomas A. Edison (20th century), the prolific inventor who held 1200 patents: "My
utmost respect and admiration to all the engineers, especially the greatest of them all:
God."
27
Robert Millikan (20th century), great American physicist, Nobel Prize 1923: "I can
assert most definitely that the denial of faith lacks any scientific basis. In my view,
there will never be a true contradiction between faith and science."
Erwin Schrödinger (20th century), discoverer of wave mechanics, Nobel Prize 1933:
"The finest masterpiece is the one made by God, according to the principles of
quantum mechanics … "

After graduating from high school in Baton
Rouge, I attended Baylor University in
Waco, TX where I met my wife, Marylou,
of Ruston, LA. Shortly after our wedding in
2005, we moved to the Greater New Orleans area so that I could pursue a Master of
Divinity degree from New Orleans Baptist
Theological Seminary. While attending
NOBTS, I served two churches in the New
Orleans area as Student Pastor. After graduation, our family moved to Brookhaven,
MS to serve as Student Pastor at
Easthaven Baptist Church. In 2013, I was
asked to serve as Executive Pastor at
Easthaven until coming to FBC Summit in
June, 2015 to serve in the same capacity.
Marylou and I are blessed with two daughters and a son – Tristyn, Avery Kate, and
Hudson. I enjoy running, golf, deer
hunting, & spending time with my family.
