Clay was born in Texas, but spent most of his years in Memphis. He graduated from SMU and spent a year in Vancouver, BC involved with Young Life and working in Real Estate. Moving from Real Estate, to Young Life Staff, to Covenant Seminary, back to his home church for four years as the minister of counseling, to private practice, and then to Knoxville and Cedar Springs, the road has been a testament to growing in grace and knowledge of Christ.
Clay is married to Bisha and they have been blessed with 4 children and now five grandsons. Jake and Lauren are each married and Caleb is a senior at Georgia.
Clay enjoys his dog, water, and the mountains and any time he can get with his wife to enjoy God’s creation, their children, or grandsons!
