God led Justin to be a part of the Crossroads family in August of 2014. He is married to Jennifer and they are blessed with 3 amazing children: Josiah, Paul, and Leah. Justin has a heart for church planting and for the unreached in The Woodlands and beyond to experience the life that only Christ can offer. Originally from Livingston, TX, he planted a great church in Rapid City, South Dakota, called Hills of Grace Fellowship. Justin received his formal education from East Texas Baptist University on the bachelor’s level, and Truett Baptist Theological Seminary and Dallas Baptist University on the graduate level. But his greater education has been from many years of ministry, loving and being loved by some incredible people that God has put in his path.

Justin has been brought to Crossroads to continue the amazing missions mindset that our church has been blessed with, train up pastors/church planters through our Pastor-In-Residence program and lead our church to partner with them to be effective for Christ, and help our family reach beyond the Crossroads walls into The Woodlands community.
