About Youth Pastor

What’s Up?


Youth Pastor at Silver Springs Baptist Church


My wife and I, Lisa, will be married 33 years on February 15. We have four children, Noah, Abby, Eli, and Ivy. We have one grandson, Logan Parker Shouse. I met Lisa in 1982 at Cumberland University where I attended on a baseball scholarship. I played for the Bulldogs for three years, then was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates, where I played for one year. 

In 1986 Lisa and I were married and started attending First Baptist Church of Mt. Juliet, where Lisa was already a member. 

I have been working in the student ministry for over 10 years where I have served as a Sunday School teacher, discipleship coordinator, divisional leader, and youth camp director.

I am excited about God and what he is doing in our youth group here at Silver Springs and I can’t wait to see what God has planned for 2019.

I would love for you to pray with my family and I as we discern God’s will for us and our church this year. 


Let’s be friends…

Contact me and let me know what is on your heart and how I can pray for you.
