About My Family

Born in Colorado and raised in Oklahoma, I grew up in a family of seven with parents who loved the Lord and made church a priority. I gave my life to Christ at a young age and had many great teachers and leaders pour into me over the course of my life, and through that I have seen the necessity of a church family and community.

New York was never on my radar or my family's. But after spending a week in New York City (NYC) for a missions trip in 2017 and returning as an intern the summer of 2018, I knew that was where God was going to take me. I am thankful for God's grace on my life and His plan to use me here in this city, and I am excited to see what He is going to do!

About My Church Plant

At Everlasting Church in the Bronx, NYC, I have the opportunity to serve in worship for our services. I also get to disciple our teenagers and to lead in our Sunday kid's ministry. God has done so much in my life to bring me where He wants, and He has given me a desire to share with others that He wants to do the same for them. He also has given me a strong passion to build community among believers here who so desperately need it.

Whether a barista in the local coffee shop or a homeless man on the corner, God does not want anyone to be alone.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood.
Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.

Pray for Everlasting Church as we strive to reach our community. Pray the church body would continue to grow together and step out into our neighborhoods. Pray for our various ministries (Sunday services, kid's ministry, ESL classes, youth ministry, small groups and community outreach). Pray that God would be the guide in all these things and that He would bring fruit from them. Pray for New York City as a whole and all those whom God has called to be here. Pray God would speak to the lost and breathe life into His workers. Pray that I would continue to trust in the Lord and be hopeful and excited about what He has in store.


Pray for myself and the people of Everlasting Church, and consider partnering with me as God chooses to use me in this city.
