About My Family

I grew up in Tennessee and have attended church my whole life. I felt called to Portland after I spent 10 days there on a missions trip helping Spring of Life Church. The brokenness and darkness I saw and experienced in Portland triggered something in my heart that pushed me to pursue spending time in this city to add to the effort of bringing people into Jesus' light.

About My Church Plant

Spring of Life is a new church in Portland, Ore. This church is very focused on bringing light to a city that is very dark. The church's mission statement is "Inviting Thirsty People to Become Disciples of Jesus."

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
