I grew up in South Texas. Upon high school graduation I came to Howard Payne University and spent the next four years wrestling, growing, and being discipled by a couple of men here. It was a formative time in my life, and I think my desire to see college students grow and be challenged in their faith started here. After graduating from Howard Payne I spend ten years in student ministry. During this time, I married Lindsay, an artistic, funny, wise, and rock solid woman who has spent these last eleven years being used by God to make me a better man, pastor, and dad.
We moved to Portland, Oregon in 2009 where I spent the next six years finishing up a Th.M. degree at Western Seminary, watching our family grow from two to five, and serving as the Worship and College Pastor for a church there. We moved back to Brownwood in 2015, feeling that the Lord was moving us here. I love my family, hiking, reading, and watching Netflix with my wife. I’m passionate about Jesus and seeing college students live their lives in a serious pursuit of joy and the glory of God in Christ. These can be tumultuous years, but years of incredible growth, change, and healing in Jesus. I want to help college students see that.
I am a senior at Howard Payne University. I’m majoring in Christian Education with a Bible minor, and am simultaneously pursuing my Masters in Theology and Ministry. I serve as the “media/communications” intern for Genuine, so I do some of our graphic design stuff and post updates on our facebook page. I also really love meeting with and discipling girls, and would love to help get you plugged in to a small group if you are not in one already. My main job is to just be available and help you in your walk with Christ in any way I can.
I am also the president of Delta Chi Rho, one of the sororities on campus. I love playing sports, being outside, paddle-boarding, reading, and hanging out with people. Outside of school and church, I am most likely at the lake or in my hammock somewhere. College is such a crazy time, but it is full of opportunities to learn, grow, and have fun. The college ministry at Coggin is a great community of people to have beside you during all those times in life. It has truly been a family for me, and the teaching is fundamental.
Send me an email or FB message if you have questions or need anything!
I fell in love with Coggin the minute I walked in, and I hope as time goes on that you will love it just as much as I do. God has blessed me with the opportunity to serve this year as the worship intern, where I want to try to lead people in music that is wholly pleasing to the Lord. I have always been excited to see God move within our music ministry during Genuine, because He moves in such great ways. I first started serving in our music ministry my freshman year as a backup acoustic guitar, and over time I became so amazed at how God uses college students and instruments to make His love and faithfulness known to His people.
At Howard Payne I am a Family Studies major, a leader of Campus Outreach through the BSM, and the chaplain of Gamma Beta Phi Honors Society. Off campus I am a clinical psych intern for New Horizons Ranch. I want my time at Howard Payne and Coggin to be spent showing people how much Christ wants them. I want college students to understand how much Jesus gave so that we could all freely worship Him, and be a part of the greatest love story known to man. I love working, talking to people, and eating cheese fries. So, if you ever feel like you need to take a break from school and have a craving for some delicious junk food, hit me up, we can hang out sometime.
I am from Austin, Texas! I am majoring in Biomedical Science and minoring in Cross-Cultural Studies. I hope to one day be a missionary nurse! I serve on campus as a Resident Assistant in Veda Hodge Hall on the 2nd floor west side. I am also the chaplain of Delta Chi Rho, a local sorority on campus.
I am so excited to be serving as the outreach intern! I strongly believe that college is a perfect time to grow in your relationship with God and fellow believers and Coggin is definitely a place that can help you with that! I would love to get to know you! You are not alone! If you ever need someone to talk to I would love to be there for you!
I am a sophomore at Howard Payne from Llano Texas. I’m majoring in Engineering Science, I’m a member of the fraternity Delta Epsilon Omega and I’m an RA in Taylor Hall on campus. I am the tech intern for Coggin, so I set up the sound system and the computer and make sure that all the stage lights work for Genuine. I love being outside, playing guitar, reading, hiking, video games, and talking to people, the longer the conversation the better. I am really excited to have the opportunity to share Jesus with other students and help them in their walk with Him. If you ever need anyone to talk to or hang out with, look me up.
Hello! To those reading, my name might say Alex Bingham, but I'm more commonly called "STING'EM Bingham". I am a junior here at Howard Payne University, I'm majoring in Bible with a minor in English! Before I called HPU my home I went to school in Baytown, Texas, trying to get my degree in mechanical technicians, but felt the Lord pulling me to learn scripture, which brought me to where I am today! I am originally from Bridge city Texas, which is in the swamps of southeast Texas, surrounded by water!
My life is pretty much an open book, if you ever want to know anything about me I'd love to tell you about it! And I'd also love to hear about you! Other than studying Bible, I play basketball here at Howard Payne! I love to go hiking and also dabble in guitar and cajon!
