Sam is a native of Rowlett, TX, who move back from Nashville in 2016 to join Lake Cities with his wonderful wife, Brooke.
After receiving his B.A. in music from Belmont University in Nashville, TN, Sam played and taught music for a few years in Nashville, when he felt God's call to pursue music ministry back in his hometown. This spurred a conversation with Lake Cities that eventually resulted in Sam moving down to join the church staff. In addition to serving on staff at Lake Cities, Sam is a member of the Christian band, Son Ship.
Sam enjoys playing tennis, looking forward to new Star Wars movies, and playing with his cat.
