Parker was born and raised in Greenville, SC, and graduated from the Citadel in 2014. He was raised in what you would call a “culturally-Christian” home. It wasn’t until his involvement with Campus Outreach at the Citadel during his freshmen and into his sophomore year that he finally came to a place of surrendering everything to King Jesus. Parker continued to be discipled and equipped to share his faith by Campus Outreach. After graduating, Parker was commissioned as an Infantry Officer in the Army and was eventually stationed at Fort Drum, NY. Throughout his military service, the Lord continued to cultivate in Parker a heart for those who have not heard and do not know the love of Jesus. This burden for the lost has led him to leave the active-duty Army for the National Guard and come on staff with Campus Outreach. Parker hopes to see the Kingdom of God impacted by his impact on cadets’ lives with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
