Bio 
Justin grew up in Picayune, MS, where he was a standout baseball player.  As a pitcher, he helped lead the team to a state championship in 2002.  After his junior season, he signed with Mississippi State.  He was introduced to FCA at Mississippi State where he became involved with the leadership team and used his platform as a baseball player to speak at local FCA huddles and youth groups and serve the community.  It was at MSU through FCA and his church that Justin grew in his faith.  During his baseball career he lead the SEC his sophomore year with an ERA of 1.66 and was named SEC pitcher of the week twice.  He was also a part of the team that made a trip to the College World Series in 2007. 

Justin and Bethany met through FCA and were married December 13, 2008.  Justin coached their first two years of marriage as a pitching coach at Saint Leo University in Saint Leo, FL.  After two seasons of coaching, he was let go and God led both of them to Mississippi College to work with FCA.  They knew God was calling them to some area of sports ministry but was not sure what that would look like.  That sports ministry is FCA and they are both a team at MC serving alongside one another as campus directors.  They both began working for FCA at MC in September of 2010.
