Born and raised in Jasper, Alabama, Sky grew up facing generational poverty, social injustices, and fatherlessness. Fear and feelings of being trapped in cyclical patterns kindled a desire for fairness and unity at a young age. Growing up in the church seven days a week, he was taught the basics of Christianity with no real understanding of who Christ was as Lord and Savior.
In college, Sky was invited to Campus Outreach's Summer Beach Project 2010. God used that summer and the two years following to reveal that Sky only thought he was a Christian and still needed to come into a relationship with Him. God began working in Sky and redeeming him.
As a leader at Summer Beach Project 2013, God allowed him to room with Lee Mayhall. Their friendship grew through football and an even tighter brotherhood in Christ. Lee shared his new vision from his time at Common Ground Montgomery which rekindled the flame in Sky for Gospel-centered justice and reconciliation.
"Through God's redemption in my life, I came to see the great need of Christ-centered transformation in the lives of others who have had a similar upbringing to mine."
Learning the Lord's heart towards justice and equality, Sky has faithfully accepted this call to be a part of Common Ground Shoals.
