About My Family

My wife and I met in college through Campus Crusade for Christ. I accepted Christ as my personal Lord and Savior as a freshman at West Chester University. We both had a passion to serve others together during our college years, and we got married in October of 2013. In addition to seeing people come into a relationship with Christ, our passions include exercising, cheering for the Philadelphia 76ers and going to Dorney Park!

About My Church Plant

God laid it on my heart to pursue planting a church in my hometown, where I grew up. We launched The Vine Church in October of 2016. Our mission is to see people begin a relationship with Christ, grow in their faith and be used by God wherever He calls them in their lifetimes.

We teach verse-by-verse, chapter-by-chapter through God's Word, and we have a focus on intentional discipleship. We are currently leading ministries on the local community college's campus and in the local communities and neighborhoods around Schnecksville and Orefield.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is person who, in response to God’s call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at “Send me.”


Please pray that:
–We would be a light and a witness to the surrounding communities for Christ.
–God would open up many divine appointments so that we could make a difference for Him.
–We would be a church that is in unity with each other and with the surrounding ministries that are focused on the gospel of Christ


Connect as a Sending Church or a Supporting Church with our work. Commit to long-term missions support with us. Pray for us.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
