About My Family

My wife and I are sold out for Christ. We make a great team, and our family has been the greatest ministry alliance I have ever been part of. We have given up a lot and made many sacrifices to be about our Father's business. While we are completely committed to ministry, we have made a promise to our daughter that she will never feel burned by the church because it took her daddy away.

We believe that family is ministry number one and that God would not call us to be obedient to one calling if it would mean neglecting or being disobedient to another. We believe that ministry starts in the home, and you cannot export what you do not have at home. Our experience tells us that the enemy will attack our ministry by attacking our family first; therefore, we take great care to protect our home and family relationships.

About My Church Plant

Ours is a leadership-development oriented ministry with a focus on training up and sending out leaders. Leaders could be godly parents who disciple their children, para-church ministry leaders, pastors, missionaries, chaplains, teachers, church leaders, lay leaders and especially church planters. We expect to be a training ground for many leaders who will go out to do greater things than we will ever accomplish ourselves.

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.
