About My Family

My wife and I have a huge heart for people of all cultures to come to faith in Christ. We have two beautiful kids who we hope will become part of the next generation of world changers who will take the gospel to the ends of the earth.

About My Church Plant

The Bridge Community Church is a church plant in the Queensboro Plaza area in Queens. Our hope is to be a place where we can act as a bridge between different socioeconomic groups within the neighborhood and be a refuge where the lost, the lonely and the unloved can come into relationship with Jesus and become disciples of Him. Our goal is to plant new church locations throughout all of Queens. We will launch on Easter 2019. As a team member, my focus will be to support and serve the church in whatever way is necessary in order for the good news of Jesus to reach the people of Queensboro.

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

That those who are least likely to pursue Jesus will have their eyes opened to the reality of who Jesus really is and will grasp the magnificence of what He has done. That the people of New York will connect to community and experience real love. For our church to know Him and make Him known.
