About My Family

I am married to Alisha, and we have two wonderful children, Makaela and Zuriel.

About My Church Plant

We love Jesus. We love each other. We love our neighbors. Southwest Detroit is our home. We want all our friends, family and neighbors to have new hope in the good news of Jesus, a new home in the family of God (the church) and a new hustle living for Jesus and His mission.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a 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 namb.net/send-me.

For persons of peace in the community, which are people who accept us and Jesus and open new avenues for the gospel that we could not have created on our own. For God to unite as a family those with whom we are gathering, established by our mutual adoption in Christ, on His mission in our neighborhood. That we all grow in our love for Jesus so the fruit of that love ends in faithfulness and fruitfulness. For laborers to join our work, join the work of others or start new works. For all the churches and church plants in the city.

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.
