Learning How To Learn

One of the best things I learned in college as an Engineering major was simply learning “how to learn.” During my senior year, one of my wise professors made the statement that “when you start a job, you won’t use 90% of what we have taught you. But we have taught you how to learn, and how to learn quickly” That philosophy goes a long way in life and in ministry.

In my engineering career, I constantly was learning new software, discovering new products, and finding new solutions. I had to know where to look for answers and who I could ask for help.

In ministry, I’ve learned very quickly how much I don’t know. I can either pretend to have it all under control, or I can be real and honest. I’m still learning and I hope to continue to learn throughout my life. May I never get to the point where I have all the answers.


I am a former design engineer who now pastors Cornerstone Community Church in Galax, Virginia. I'm passionate about following Jesus and I love technology. I've been married to Jennifer for 28 years, and we have three adult children.
