Justin came to faith in Christ as a child at the age of 11. Growing up in the church and in a pastor’s home generated his passion to see lost people reached with the hope of the Gospel. He graduated from the University of Arkansas when he was called into the ministry. Meeting with church planters and pastors from the West Coast stirred a passion and desire for Justin to plant or revitalize in that part of the country. Justin received a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Arkansas, an M. Div. and D. Min. from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
