Whit grew up in a large Southern Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA. He graduated from Georgia State University in 1979 with a degree in social work. Finding a new home in a small Presbyterian congregation in Atlanta’s inner-city, he worked there for two years as the church’s community minister. Whit then worked on an adolescent unit of a private psychiatric hospital before entering seminary. He received his Master of Divinity degree from Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in 1984 and in 2012 was awarded a Doctor of Ministry degree in preaching from McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago, IL. Whit has served congregations in southern Indiana, Louisville, KY., Ames, IA., and now Hickory. Whit and wife Kris have three daughters: Maggie, Emma and Evelyn. When not at church he can be found walking Ellie the dog, exploring the mountains on his bicycle, moving plants around in his garden, or on the golf course.
