RJ has been in youth ministry since 2009, and joined the Pope Drive staff in 2014. He is married to Brandee and they have one son, Kaydon. RJ is currently attending Covington Theological Seminary. It is RJ’s desire to obey God’s commandments, to teach according to His Word, and to love the youth. RJ loves to connect with the youth on a personal level. It is not uncommon to see him on a Friday night at a football game then on a Saturday night at a dance recital! He loves to support the youth in any way he can.
