Dwayne grew up in Shawsville, Virginia. Dwayne's parents became Christians when he was a very young child and they took Dwayne and his brothers and sister to church regularly. Dwayne became a Christian and received the call from God to preach when he was 14 years old. His first sermon was about seven minutes long!

Dwayne preached at his dad's church until he married Becky in 1989. Before coming to Christiansburg to pastor, Dwayne was the pastor of the Bland Bible Church in Bland County, Virginia. He served as pastor for those wonderful people for 10 years. During that time, Dwayne served several years as the Youth President for the Bible Methodist Connection of Tennessee and was involved in numerous youth meetings and conventions.

Then, Dwayne felt called of God to accept the pastorate of Bible Holiness Church in Christiansburg, Virginia. He has been working in that position since January 2005.

Dwayne has always been dedicated to God and to His service. Being a preacher and pastor is not just a job for him; it's his whole life! He truly cares about people and it is his desire to help as many as he can make it to Heaven.
