JRS_2116-EditMy name is Clifford, but just about everyone I know calls me Clip. Because God is so gracious to me, I became a Christian when I was six years old.

I have an amazing wife, Mary, and we have been married since October 2004. God blessed us with a son, Isaac, on March 17, 2012. Being a husband and a dad is incredible. I wouldn’t trade either for anything.

I graduated from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in May 2008 with a Doctor of Educational Ministry with a focus in church leadership.

Until God led us into missions I was on the pastoral staff at Mile Straight Baptist Church. I was in that role for almost 17 years, from 1998-2014. I love pastors, and I love the church. As a result, I can’t imagine doing anything else than what we are doing now. I am so thankful to God for His grace, mercy, and joy.
