Troy is currently doing work on his Master of Divinity at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Troy has served as a student ministry intern at Getwell church in Southaven, MS from 2016-2019 and served as Student ministry intern at Immanuel Baptist church in Little Rock, AR from 2019-2020. During his year in Little Rock, Troy participated in a year-long discipleship training institute called the Downline Institute for Discipleship. He is passionate about equipping the next generation because he himself came to Christ because of the faithful evangelism of his High School friends. Troy now works diligently to ensure that every student has the ability to share the gospel with those around them. One thing Troy feels he missed out on growing up was a strong Biblical foundation. Because of this, Troy has committed himself to supporting families as they raise bold, radical, Bible-believing students who fulfill the great commission! Troy also enjoys playing golf, baseball, basketball, hiking, rock climbing, and board games.
