Buster has a passion for helping teens experience the grace of God, and he likes to have fun. He grew up in Smyrna, TN and married his high school sweetheart, Kim, in 1982. They have three boys. Trey is married to Brittany. They are the parents of Buster's favorite granddaughter. Matt is teaching in middle TN, and Zach is in physical therapy school at UTCHS. Buster graduated from Memphis State, sold envelopes for five years, and then joined the staff at Highland in 1987 after years of volunteering. He loves Alabama football, Memphis basketball, watching TV, John Wayne movies, heart-healthy food, and laughing. He hates working on cars and doing house repairs because he is terrible at both. No one really knows how he got the nickname Buster.
