Taylor's Bio

Taylor is the Student Pastor at Valley View Baptist Church in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Taylor travels across the country speaking and sharing his impactful story with thousands each year.

Taylor’s story is one everyone should hear.
– Coach Nick Saban
Whether it’s a business, a school, or a church, Taylor’s story is one that encourages, uplifts, and challenges those in the audience. Coach Nick Saban says “Taylor’s story is one everyone should hear. It shows what perseverance and faith can do when life presents you with the greatest challenges. As you read his book, I know you will appreciate the message. Taylor has taken themes adverse of situations and worked each and every day to be a blessing to other people.”

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
– Philippians 3:13-14
Taylor is also the founder of Converge Ministries. Converge is a ministry that puts on events that thousands attend every year. Converge also partners with the Trent McDaniel Morton Scholarship Fund that give out thousands of dollars each year to students all over the United States.

In November of 2015, Taylor published his first book, titled “It’s Only Pain: But It’s Real and It Hurts”. The book immediately soared to the top 10 sports biographies on Amazon. Taylor’s heart is to serve people and to encourage them that no matter how tough life gets, they should never, never quit.
