Dusty creatively motivates and challenges in the Sunday morning messages, using sound Biblical truth, practical application, interactive learning, and rumor has it you’ll have lots of fun in the process! In addition to preaching Dusty is also the minister over the Growth POD, the group of ministries involved in promoting spiritual growth in the church: the Preaching Team, the Worship Teams, Growth Groups, and Small Groups.

Children: Isaiah and Judah
School / Degree: Kentucky Christian College, BS in Bible with a Literature Minor
Hired at MCC: August of 2005
Hobbies / Personal Interests:
Zoo trips, movies, and picnics with my family. Going out with my wife on a date, finding sometime to hangout at the house when the day quiets down to talk, or just sit together and watch a show. Both of our boys inherited my Star Wars and video game geek gene and we enjoy sharing in those common interests either discussing various Star Wars trivia or playing Mine Craft (or similar games) on our tablets together. You will often find us discussing, in just everyday conversations, some “Bible” topic which is a real joy to live out the wisdom of Deuteronomy 6. We have a growing number of pets that we enjoy as a family. I’m a Black Belt and instructor in Tae Kwon Do. I enjoy PC gaming (currently into SWTOR). Oh yeah, and I play a little guitar too.
Most anything negative, negative comments, negative criticism, negative attitudes, negative people, negative numbers in my bank account, negative temperatures, the list just goes on and on. . .

Land of the Lost, The Dukes of Hazzard, The A-Team, Knight Rider, The Greatest American Hero, Mork and Mindy, The Muppet Show, Friday night Kung Fu Theater with the smell of Dad grilling hamburgers and my mom’s baked beans coming from upstairs.
Current Favorite TV Shows:
This is Us, Vikings, The Americans, Brooklyn Nine-nine, and I confess to watching various and sundry “reality” shows (Survivor, Ink Master, America’s Got Talent, Master Chef Junior, Hell’s Kitchen, Shark Tank, etc.).
