North Campus Pastor
I’m so thankful to be part of the Beltway Park Church family! I love being a part of a healthy church that desires to share the love of Jesus with the people of the Abilene area and the world.
When I was a kid, my family moved about every 5 years because of new job opportunities for my parents. I experienced a lot of change during my childhood (different churches, different schools and different friends). I graduated high school in Monahans, Texas and chose to attend Hardin-Simmons University for my undergraduate degree in the year 2000. Immediately I connected with Beltway Park when we were just in the little chapel of the South Campus. At that time, our college group met across the street in the band hall of Wylie Schools. It’s been a blast to be part of the growth over the years.
HSU and Beltway Park Church have both been a huge part of my life. I met my amazing wife, Ashlee, at HSU and we were married in 2004 in Logsdon Chapel. I met lifelong, incredible friends while in college. After graduation from HSU, I started working for the school and pursuing my Masters of Divinity at Logsdon Seminary while my wife pursued her Masters in Counseling and Human Development. I worked in higher education for almost a decade and we both completed our degrees.
Then God fulfilled a promise that he gave me a couple years earlier when he said “I’m not done with you at Beltway yet.” I didn’t know what that meant at the time but my family knew that we were supposed to stay in Abilene and keep serving with our church even though we felt ready then for a change. Two years later, Beltway Park “randomly” called me and offered me a position as a Groups pastor. God has been so faithful all along the way, even when we didn’t understand His timing or reasons in the waiting.
Ashlee and I have experienced so much in this community. When life has brought us both joy and pain, Jesus became more real with every step of the way and Beltway Park has been an integral part of pointing us to Jesus. We struggled with years of infertility. We have struggled with our marriage. We have struggled with our identity and purpose. But because of our time in Abilene and because of Beltway Park Church, we have also experienced freedom in Christ. We have learned what it is to rely on Jesus. We have experienced hope and what it is to have a friend in Jesus. We’ve had two miracle sons (Kress and Mayes) while being here. We’ve learned to love each other like Christ loves. We’ve learned to love others, including our enemies. We’ve learned how to serve like Jesus.
We are still learning and growing and now, so are our boys. I love getting to see and hear how they are worshipping Jesus and learning in Beltway Kids. I honestly don’t even like to think about what life would have been like for us without what Jesus has given us in friends and experiences in this community. I now am honored to serve as the Weekend Services Pastor for both campuses. I love this church! I love the opportunities for missions and outreach that it provides to me and my family! And I look forward to see what Jesus is going to do, in the days to come, with this group of people!

I was born and raised right here in Abilene, TX. I grew up going to church, but it wasn’t until May 2007, at a youth camp in South Padre Island, TX, that the Lord graciously opened my eyes and heart to Him, and I have been pursuing Him ever since.
I originally started serving at Beltway Park as a college freshman in 2009 on the Youth Ministry worship team. Soon afterwards, I began an internship under the Worship Department, and in 2011 I joined the staff as an A/V Tech.
In June 2013, I married my incredible wife Mandy, and we quickly moved to the Dallas-area as I began to serve as a Worship Pastor in Forney, TX. Then, in August 2014, Mandy and I moved back to Abilene, and I once again started volunteering with Beltway’s Youth Ministry worship team.
Then in August 2016, I joined the Beltway Park staff as the North Campus Student Pastor. It is my utmost hope and prayer that every student in this city would come to know and be transformed by the love, grace, and abundant life found in Jesus.

I was born and raised in San Antonio and moved to Abilene in 2003 to attend ACU. Holy Spirit came into my life at the age of 14 when I started following Jesus and I’ve been amazed at God’s goodness ever since. I spent my post-college years working as a high school teacher and soccer coach, and was privileged to see God move in my students’ lives!
My deepest desire is to see believers cherish Jesus in every part and season of their lives. He is the Supreme source of everything that is good; the most satisfying thing in the universe. He is God. He is joy. He is Eternal Life…and He loves us deeply! I believe that once we get this love for Him inside of us, and then give it away to one another, that the world will be changed!
I was blessed to be part of College Park from 2004-2011 and to see a great move of God among college students. I am confident that God still desires this and am passionate about seeing Him move in your life.
My wife, Haylee, is an amazing, wise woman that loves God with purity and integrity. We are blessed to have two beautiful daughters that are our treasures. We believe they will be Jesus-loving women, full of Holy Spirit and will do great things!
I believe this time of your life is an incredible opportunity to draw near to God and know Him in ways that will bless you for the rest of your life! Let’s receive all He has for us together, and then let’s go change the world!
I was born and raised in Austin, TX and come from a Christian background. I became a follower of Jesus February of 2013 and graduated from Stony Point High School in 2013. That summer I moved to Abilene and I started school at Abilene Christian University as a Nursing major. I quickly got involved in a freshman Life Group and started serving in the college ministry. I plugged myself into any ministry I could and have now been a part of this church for 5 years!
After 2 years I took a break from school, spent a summer in Austin, then started working here at Beltway North August of 2015. I was searching for “more” and God quickly answered that prayer and brought me back to Abilene! During my second year on staff I decided to go back to school and I am now a full time ministry major at Hardin-Simmons University.
I am passionate about this generation of college students and I’m excited I get to continue to be a part of this ministry. My heart desires to see more and more young people know Jesus intimately, know who they are in Christ and share that life with others. I believe that when we truly know Jesus, it’ll impact our lives as well as others’ lives in more ways than we can imagine. I’m honored to be a part of this ministry with you all!

I am a St. Louis, Mo. native (Go Cardinals!) but have lived in Texas long enough to call it home (Go Spurs!). I went to college at Texas A&M and received a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, a fancy way of saying I can teach children. However, I spent 11 years away from that field, chasing some music dreams. I returned to my teaching roots back in November of 2014 when I became the Early Childhood Pastor at our South Campus and most recently, in November of 2016, I took the Elementary Pastor position of our North Campus.
I eagerly look forward to seeing what God does with the kids at Beltway! He is for them, loves them, and wants to reveal all He has for their life!
For reasons I’m still searching for, my beautiful wife, Morgan, said she’d be mine in 2006. We have 3 children (so far) and can’t wait to see their gifts used for the Kingdom of God!
I am a sports fanatic, music junkie, and Netflix user who is still learning daily about who God is and how He made me to impact His people in this world.More Info

I was born and raised in Oklahoma panhandle, also known as, No Man’s Land. We moved to Abilene in 2007 and my husband, Brad, and I were so excited to move to a place with trees.. even though they’re mesquite! The hardest part of moving to Texas was adjusting to the word “y’all”.
I have served in many areas of Children’s Ministry since 2008. Children have always been a big part of my life, but when this position was offered to me in December of 2016 my initial reaction was, “Really, Lord? Me??”. Since then God has shown me every day how powerful He is and that even when I think I’m not enough, His plan always comes through. I love Early Childhood ministry because we have the opportunity to partner with parents and play a vital role of establishing a foundation for a relationship with Jesus at an early age.
We have made our home in Clyde, Texas with our kiddos and love being a part of the Beltway North family! Some of my favorite things include fast cars, leopard print, classic country music, anything orange, baseball, and glitter. When I’m not at the church, my family and I are enjoying road trips, concerts, and occasional trips to the ER (thanks to my husbands never ending church league softball career).More Info

I was born in Sedalia, Missouri, but from the ages of 3 to 18, I lived in Fort Worth, TX. Upon graduating high school, I attended Abilene Christian University from 1997-2002. There I graduated with a degree in Youth and Family Ministry. After a year working at Big Brothers and Big Sisters in Abilene, I moved back to Fort Worth where I worked for six years as a campus minister, teacher and coach at a private Christian school.
I am confident that the Lord has a sense of humor, as after leaving Abilene, I never saw myself returning. However, in 2009, the Lord called me back to work at my alma mater, ACU. For 8 years, I worked in various roles in Student Life; Chapel, Social Clubs, Sing Song and Intramurals. In the spring of 2017, I received a surprising phone call from one of the pastors at Beltway Park; offering me the opportunity to work here. So, in May of 2017, I began working as the Local Outreach Pastor at Beltway. In December of 2017, my role changed to the role I am in currently; Groups and Guest Services Pastor at our North Campus.
My beautiful wife Angela and I were married in 2004. She is my best friend; the one I confide in day after day. We have 2 children, Jayden and Laney. These two have brought unbelievable joy to our lives. I am truly grateful that my children get to grow up at Beltway Park. It thrills my heart to know that they are being taught the Word, they are encouraged to worship Jesus and shown how to love others, just like God loves each of us.
For those who know me, they know that I have never met a stranger. My heart’s desire is for it to become increasingly difficult for people to live in Abilene and the Big Country and not hear about who Jesus is. I am so thankful that I get to work and serve at Beltway Park!More Info
North Campus Groups & Guest Services Pastor
I am from Albany, Texas and have been attending Beltway since 2009. I was a student at the South Campus and grew up in their ministry throughout middle school and high school. I went to Texas Tech University and interned with Beltway youth after my freshman year of college. In Lubbock, I worked at my church as the Prayer and Missions Projects Coordinator, and in May 2017, I was brought on staff at Beltway as the North Campus Student Administrative Assistant. My hope is that students will begin to whole-heartedly pursue Jesus and have lives that are marked by their abundant love for God and for people.More Info
