About My Family

I am a 32-year-old pastor blessed to have an amazing wife, Rebecca, of six years with whom I'm excited to continue the journey of marriage. The Southeast is my culture of influence, as I lived in South Carolina for 30 years, but I am glad to be living in Kansas City following the call on both our lives to plant Multiply Church. No kids yet, but we look forward to that season of our lives. Until then, we have an incredible dog. 

About My Church Plant

Multiply Church started about six years ago when the Lord redirected me from itinerant evangelism to church planting. He began developing me, my wife, my understanding of church, my understanding of pastoring and the importance of how all of those fit together in spirit and truth. The result is a church planted in the middle of the most racially and socio-economically diverse county in Kansas.

Kansas City is a place where models and trends don't work. So far, we have uncovered more and more of what God wants: Go to an unreached city and plant a church where everything is based on developing spiritual leaders and disciple-making disciples. So, here we are. We have grown, God has provided, and people are being developed to be leaders within their home, work, and the Church. Therefore, we are simply trying to get better at it.

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 namb.net/send-me.

Pray

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.

Participate

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.
