JP is the Young Adults Director, leader of The Porch, and one of the teaching pastors at Watermark Community Church. He grew up on a farm outside the small town of Cuero in south Texas. He was involved in many different denominational churches, including nine years of Catholic school. However, he didn’t come to understand the grace of the Gospel until his early twenties when he stumbled into Watermark after pursuing all that Dallas has to offer and coming up empty. Trusting Christ as a young adult has ignited a desire in him to reach the twenties and thirties of this world for Jesus. His passion is to share the Gospel with anyone who will listen and equip others to do the same. He loves teaching from the Scripture and feels called to challenge Christians to multiply their faith by discipling others.
Together he and his wife and ministry partner, Monica, love and build into their two little girls, Presley and Finley and son, Weston.
