Speaker, Bible Teacher, Author, Advocate

Bruce speaks and writes extensively on hope, mission, the Gospel in culture, marriage, and investing our lives in what matters most.

He’s been a pastor, Bible teacher, speaker and counselor for over 23 years and is the founder and of The Momentum Group. One of his greatest joys is helping folks figure out what they do best and invest their life in what matters most!

He’s the author of “Desperate For Hope” and the co-founder of The CornerStone Initiative, a community development ministry serving the least of these in Huntsville, Alabama. He’s been married to Marlina for 34 years and has one son. An avid outdoorsman, he’s backpacked over 3,000 miles in the Appalachians and the High Sierras.


“I still hear people in our church refer back to, apply and share with others what they learned during the Desperate For Hope Revival.  God has definitely gifted Bruce as a communicator and this important message of hope has helped many of us become stronger in our faith during uncertain and difficult times.  If you want to strengthen believers and provide a relevant message for unbelievers, I highly recommend you make plans to host a Desperate For Hope Revival.”

Bobby Gordon, Pastor, GracePointe Church

“Pastor Bruce really blessed us at New Beginnings Christian Church with his powerful and uplifting message “The Perfect Storm”. He has a way of preaching and painting a picture with his message that you can hear and see what he is sharing.”  Rev. Errol Davis. Senior Pastor

New Beginnings Christian Church

“I loaned the CD of your message “The Perfect Storm” to a friend of mine who lost his wife to cancer last year.  He and kids were going to make a road trip from FL to OH, and so I thought that it would be something that they could listen to on the road. Well, evidently, they listened to it about three times, and are now using the “new normal” language and everything! M.W. – Medellin, Colombia, South America

“The message you gave was the single most thorough and insightful presentation regarding why genuine Christians can still experience trials and tribulations that I have heard since I became a Christian about 27 years ago.  It was tremendously liberating and encouraging.”

A.C. – Huntsville, AL
