Will is a native of Jacksonville Florida and has grown up here at First Baptist. The church has played a great part in the spiritual nourishment and growth of Will over the years, where many invested in his life. Through gospel-centered teaching at home and at the church, Will came to a full understanding of what it meant to be a follower of Jesus Christ as a student, which has given him a passion for the ministry in which he serves.

A recent graduate of Covenant College, Will is continuing his education by pursuing an MDiv in Biblical Counseling at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Will has served as the Director of Student Ministries (Grades 6-12) at the South Campus since June 1, 2015. He praises God that he is able to walk along a pastoral staff that seeks to lift high the name of Jesus. Will was married to his beautiful wife Hannah on January 16, 2016 and they have recently welcomed their adorable baby daughter, Renn. He loves to go on walks with Hannah and Renn through the neighborhood, catching a nice redfish, and tossing the baseball around to remember his college baseball days. Will’s favorite passage is Philippians 2:1-11, because of its beautiful description of Christ’s example of humility.
