It’s my calling to help others discover their journey and story with Jesus. Over the years I’ve done this in many different ways as God has led– including, church leadership, pastoring, fiction writing, worship ministry, and content creation.
I’m a classically trained musician with a BM degree in Music Education. I have an MA in Theology and I’m mostly finished a DMin in 21st Century Ministry. I currently serve at Malvern Hill Baptist Church in South Carolina.
I’m a published fiction author of four novels, multiple short stories, and award-winning fanfiction on Wattpad. I also dabble in content creation on Twitch, YouTube, podcasting, and TikTok.
I grew up in a ministry family and have been doing ministry in some form most of my adult life. From leading worship, to student ministry, to lead pastoring. My passion is to help people discover their journey and story with Jesus. I specialize in Christian apologetics and Christian worldview. I completed my MA in Theology from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and will be completing my Doctorate of Ministry in 21st Century Ministry form Anderson University in Anderson, SC. I have been in full-time ministry for over ten years. The first half as a pastor and these past five years as Associate Pastor of Worship and Discipleship at Malvern Hill Baptist Church.

I began writing at the age of 11. It was video game fanfiction and I tried to write it in King James English, because that's how they talked in the game. I dabbled throughout High School with short stories, poetry, and the early musings of a novel. In 2010 I published my first novel and later pushed the entire series of four books. They have collectively been nominated for several awards. Ironically, my only award win has been a Watty Award from Wattpad for my work on...well...video game fanfiction.

There are 2.5 million concurrent users on Twitch at any given moment. The number of Christian content creators actively trying to engage the platform with a Gospel presence is in the double digits. With such a vast mission field and my life-long hobby of gaming, I have been entering the world of content creation. You'll find me on several fronts.
First, I'm on Twitch as LegendOfZyro, where I stream primarily Legend of Zelda games and other story based games. While playing, I connect stories to God's story and to the viewers' stories.
Second, I have an alternate account on Twitch branded thewordcrafter. Here I do writing streams and productivity streams.
Third, I'm one of the founding members of DLC (Discover Life with Christ) a digital mission ministry. It's still in the beginning stages and hasn't fully launched yet.
Finally, you'll find me creating a variety of content on YouTube, TikTok, and through podcasting.
