Being a husband, father, father-in-law and Pap-paw has been the greatest privilege God has given me—being a pastor comes right after that! The Fair Park family has been wonderful to us for about 24 years and we love this church! Stability and health matters in a church, and so does vision. God keeps showing us how to serve the changing needs of people today. I hope you join us!
Fair Park has been my home and family my entire life! A graduate of the University of Louisiana Monroe, I worked in banking for 13 years and at the church bi-vocationally before joining the staff full time in 2005. I love serving at Fair Park and can't imagine being anywhere else. I enjoy serving our community through many organizations. I am married to Kayle and we have two beautiful daughters, Grace & Emma.
I was born and raised in West Monroe. I put my faith in Jesus Christ at fifteen years old and a few years later I was called into ministry. I graduated from ULM with a B.A. in psychology. I am married to my beautiful wife, Alecia and we have two children, Parker and Avery. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to serve at Fair Park and blessed to be a part of the Fair Park family!
Minister of Worship
I joined Fair Park in 2006 and started playing in the praise band soon after. After graduating from Louisiana Tech, I began working in education. Since 2014, I have been bi-vocational on staff at Fair Park. I've always loved playing music and love to worship God through song. Playing music with our worship team is a highlight of my week. I've been married to Amanda since 2010. She also serves on the praise team. We have 3 wonderful kids, Aly, Sadie, and Joseph.
It is my joy and pleasure to serve as Fair Park's Music Assistant. In 1979, I received my vocal music degree from Northeast LA University. Shortly after, an opportunity to teach special needs children "fell into my lap" and I enjoyed teaching these young people for 33 years. Now retired, I love spending time in the Canopy Cafe' serving our church family and folks in the community.
I have lived in West Monroe for 12 years and been a member of Fair Park for over 14 years. I have worked in the children, youth, and college ministries during that time. I graduated from ULM in 2009 with a B.A. in Arts and Sciences and am currently working on a masters at NOBTS. I have been married to my amazing wife, Lexie, for over 16 years, and we have been blessed with 2 wonderful children, Victoria and William.
Minister to Children
I have served as Minister to Children since 2002. I love being able to serve at a church where Children and families are a top priority, and where Godly foundations are being laid for our children. I graduated from the University of Louisiana Monroe in 1992 and New Orleans Theological Seminary with a pre-school and children's ministry certificate in 2000. I count it a privilege to serve at Fair Park and enjoy the opportunity to serve our state by serving on the VBS traveling team and teaching leaders at child evangelism conferences.
Children's Bible Learning Specialist
I am honored to be a part of the Fair Park Church Staff as the Children’s Bible Learning Specialist. My goal is to create, write, and implement a Bible Curriculum for our children, as well as assist leaders as they teach it. As a parent and grandparent, I feel an urgency in these uncertain times to be sure our children know, understand, and apply the Word of God to their lives. I also serve as the Coordinator for our ALLfit Wellness Ministry. This ministry uses Bible Study and Fitness classes to assist members to attain the healthy lifestyle God desires for us all.
Minister to Students
I was born in West Monroe. The Lord saved me in my Senior year of high school and called me to ministry a year later. I graduated with a B.A. in Business Administration from ULM and I am currently pursuing a master’s from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. I had the wonderful privilege of marrying my wife, Emily, on May 4th, 2019. We are blessed to serve alongside everyone here at Fair Park and get to minister to students and their families.
Minister of Ministry Development
My family originally came from Mississippi, but I have spent most of my life making Louisiana my home. This is where I met my husband Ron and began our family. God has blessed us with two children, Landon and Kacie. The Lord placed a call on my heart at a young age and after many years I committed my life to Him in full time ministry. It is my heart’s desire for people to experience a relationship with Christ and teach them to see His great might and power working in their own lives!
It has been my privilege to serve as Ministry Assistant at Fair Park since October 2012. When this position became open, God placed on my heart a desire to serve His church through my administrative and secretarial skills. I retired after 31 years at ULM having been Executive Assistant to the Dean of the College of Business Administration. Not only is it a joy to work with the pastor and each one of the ministers daily, but it is also a privilege to serve and minister to the church family.
I am originally from West Monroe, but had the blessing of moving away to seminary, then later to Mississippi and Georgia. I graduated from ULM with a Bachelor of Business Administration, Management. I moved to Fort Worth, Texas to earn my seminary degree in Master of Arts, Church Administration. Later in my career I earned an Executive MBA from Louisiana Tech. I am in awe of how God has merged my background, education, career and ministry to serve Him in this capacity at Fair Park.
Originally from Pineville, LA, I moved to Monroe to attend ULM in 2013, where I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Communication and Digital Media. When I was in high school, my passion for music ministry began when I was asked to join the youth praise team in my student ministry. I now have the privilege of leading Student Worship, as well as helping with the music ministry on Sunday mornings. I am married to my best friend and amazing wife, Ashlee, and we are excited to be a part of this great ministry.
Minister to Young Adults
I began following Christ as Lord at the age of eleven. I've lived in North Louisiana all my life and went to school at ULM, graduating in Kinesiology. In 2010 I felt called to the ministry and have had the privilege of serving on staff at various local churches since that time. I'm married to my lovely wife Amber who is a wonderful partner in ministry. I'll receive a Master of Divinity from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in December 2020 and am very excited to serve as Minister to Young Adults at Fair Park. Statistics say young adults usually leave the church due to bad experiences and a lack of connection. Fair Park is a church who prioritizes this age group as a major ministry focus. May God use our church to bring up strong and faithful leaders from this generation who make a difference for God’s Kingdom in our community!
