In addition to Vertical, TA travels throughout the year speaking at various churches, camps and retreats. Prior to his time in Waco, TA served as a student pastor in Austin for 5.5 years. He received a degree from Dallas Theological Seminary and is a proud member of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 2003!
