About My Family

Marci and I were married in 2001 and share two sons and a daughter. We are both originally from the Midwest and attended New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (NOBTS) to pursue training in the field of church planting later in life. Our family has been in Chicago for five years and has now set roots here to make disciples for a very long time.

I am a visionary leader who seeks to make disciples and mobilize them to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community. Marci completed and graduated with two church leadership certificates in worship and women’s ministry from Leavell College in May 2015.

About My Church Plant

The name of our church plant is Sow Community Church. The mission of the church is to sow the gospel, help others grow in Christ and teach them how to be on mission in day-to-day life. We are developing partnerships with myriad churches to make an impact in the city and, more specifically, Irving Park while working what can be at times some pretty hard soil. However, we are steadily building community relationships and setting groundwork for Sow Community Church to grow and be a church that multiplies.

Many partners and prayer warriors from all over the world will be required to accomplish the vision God has set forth to make disciples in the city of Chicago. Please pray with them as they seek to exalt Christ in the city.

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


Pray God will direct us to people who can be part of our growing team. Pray for receptive hearts among the people in Irving Park and those in northwest Chicago as we seek to make disciples and plant churches. Pray God would provide churches who want to partner with us for 3–5 years, providing prayer, resources and ministry support to our team. Pray God would create a bivocational leadership team with the hunger to make disciples and plant more churches in our 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. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
