While working on his masters, Casey worked as a Consulting Engineer until graduation in July 2012. He finished with a Master of Divinity degree in Biblical Languages from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. After graduation, he served as a senior pastor in Bossier City, LA until September 9th, 2015, when he accepted the call to pastor the First Baptist Church of Camden, Arkansas. In addition to his ministerial work, he is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Biblical Interpretation with Minors in Theology and Ethics from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Casey also serves as an adjunct instructor in Old Testament, New Testament, Comparative Religion, and Philosophy at Southern Arkansas University Tech.

When Casey is not spending time with my family or ministering at First Baptist, he enjoys hunting, fishing, woodworking, reading, writing, gardening, playing guitar, and playing golf.
