Youth Minister

The most important thing to know about Donnie is that he is trying to follow Jesus. Donnie's greatest desire is to share that life and the Gospel with teenagers, and he's gotten to do just that for the past 17 years at Highland. His favorite four people in the world are his wife, Bethany; 6-year old son, Emory; 4-year-old daughter, Annie; and 2-year old baby girl, Maggie. He loves playing with his chocolate lab, living in Memphis, serving the homeless, running, Alabama football, and making memories with teens that will last forever (not necessarily in that order). Donnie hates peanut butter and women's basketball (like he's allergic to them both). He still cannot believe that he gets to do this everyday and going to work is a daily reminder that "God is good."
