Donovan has been a student pastor for over twenty years experiencing life with teenagers and their families through the highest achievements and the darkest moments imaginable. He has seen the faithfulness of God throughout the years. These years in the trenches have benefited his ministry and personal growth in Christ immensely. He has pursued an education along the way and graduated from B. H. Carroll Theological Institute with a Ph D in the areas of Scripture and Witness.
Donovan is married to a former Flying Queen at Wayland Baptist University and has three children, two of which are in his current student ministry. They live in West Texas, a community built upon agriculture, hard work and three universities. These universities provide many new faces in need of Christ or individuals desiring to know more about Him. Donovan grew up in West Texas, joined the military, came back and is building a home in the wide-open space!
