L.J. was born and raised in Soddy Daisy, TN. He attended Bryan College where he played baseball and earned a B.S. degree in communication. During his time at Bryan, L.J. met his amazing wife Madison and now they have the privilege of being parents to their daughter, Ivy. L.J. served as a student ministry intern at Long Hollow Baptist Church in Hendersonville, TN, where the Lord confirmed a call to ministry in his life, and he is currently studying for a Master’s degree in Biblical Studies at Bryan College. He would rather be outside than inside (playing golf, hiking, out in the yard with the family, walking around downtown). L.J. also loves coffee, la croix, hot weather, the beach and Georgia Bulldogs.
