About My Family

I have lived all over the country, including Central Florida, where my wife, Ashley, and I met and married. Ashley and I have been together for 13 years, and we have two sons: Daniel (22 years old) and Ethan (9 years old). Ashley works full time in human resources at a local university and is also very involved with our ministry.

We love to build an authentic inclusive community that makes people feel welcome by breaking down religious stereotypes. We are very passionate about seeing those who are far from God experience the life-changing gospel of Jesus.

About My Church Plant

I have been serving in various ministries for more than 30 years, including homeless and music ministry. I was ordained in 2001, but was not called to church planting until fall of 2018, when I was called to plant in North Brevard County. On March 1, 2020, The Rock Church officially launched at Astronaut High School with plans to be a portable church. We had a total of five in-person services before the COVID pandemic forced us to immediately begin having online services.

In July 2020, The Rock was presented with the opportunity to receive a nearby empty church building. In January 2021, we “re-launched” in Mims, Fla. As of February 2023, we have had 314 confessions of faith and 90 baptisms. We are currently developing plans for a phased building renovation and eventual addition, which is expected to begin in summer 2023.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions in North America are in desperate need of hope. Ultimately, the only hope that’s going to last - in this life and the next - is the hope of the gospel. North American missionaries build relationships and share this hope in their communities and beyond.


Pray that through this ministry more people would come to know Jesus. Pray for attendance to grow, both in numbers and in spiritual health. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy. Pray for provision of a church building and staffing needs. It is Ashley’s desire to work full-time in ministry. Pray for opportunities for this to happen.


Pray for us. Provide for us by helping financially support us in these early years when the church can’t provide for itself. Encourage us via email, call or text.
