About My Family

Katy and I have been married since October 2007. We have two children, Clare and Judson. I am an avid runner and also enjoy building relationships through playing basketball. As a family, we love walking throughout the various parks here in Boston and playing with our kids. Katy and I are both passionate about discipling believers and seeing those far from God come in contact with Him.  

About My Church Plant

Before arriving in Boston, I was on staff at New Vision Baptist Church in Murfreesboro, Tenn., for more than 10 years. I led the college, young professionals and young married ministry. My wife and I consider our time in Murfreesboro a wonderful gift.
I have a heart to see college-aged individuals and young adults evangelized, mobilized and sent out. Boston is an extremely transient city with many moving to other cities or suburbs within four–five years. We want to raise up young, mature and godly leaders who will benefit the church in which they find themselves upon leaving us. We also want to plant churches throughout New England through developing, training and sending out young men and women who are called to plant.  

My wife and I provide leadership over Grace City Church in the Fenway neighborhood of Boston, Mass.

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


For churches as they prepare to send out missionaries and chaplains to push back lostness in North America. For receptive hearts among the people in communities where these missionaries and chaplains will serve. For churches and individuals to partner with missionaries and chaplains and to give of their time and talents. For the Father to send more workers into His harvest to join these missionaries.


Connect as a Sending Church or a Supporting Church with a missionary’s work. Commit to long-term missions support with your missionary partner. Be involved in supporting missionaries and their families. Pray for missionaries.
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.
