In June 2019, the church promoted Donald to the position of Assistant Pastor, following service as Youth Pastor since 2014. His primary ministry responsibility continues to be students and families at HBC, but also includes various other responsibilities within the daily operations and life of the church.
In 2008, he and his wife Katherine (who grew up at HBC) began serving alongside the former Youth Pastor at Heritage learning student ministry, investing in the lives of teens and their families, and proving themselves faithful to the work God has called them to.
Prior to joining the staff at HBC, Donald spent more than 14 years in the business world. During that time, he served as a deacon, volunteer youth leader, vocalist in the choir and praise team, and with the audio/visual media team. Donald holds a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from Troy University, and a Masters Degree in Applied Biblical Studies from Moody Bible Institute.
Donald and Katherine have been married for 13 years and have 3 children, Aaron (12), Luke (9) & Sarah (4). Donald enjoys sports, the outdoors, hunting and fishing, grilling and BBQing.
