Dwayne was born and raised in Mobile, AL. He went to college at the University of South Alabama and received a degree in chemical engineering. While in college, he was very involved with Baptist Campus Ministry. After graduating from college, he went to Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, TX, where he received his Master of Divinity in December of 2000. While in seminary, he met his wife, Joni, and they have been married since November of 2000.

Dwayne has a passion for youth and college students. His desire is for them to know Christ, receive Christ, live for Christ, and share the love of Christ. He wants them to follow the cross and not the crowd. He wants them to truly understand the words of Jesus in Matt 16:24, “If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me.” Dwayne is excited what God is going to do in and through the student ministry of Red House.
