About My Family

Jamie and I both grew up in the same small Missouri town. We graduated from the University of Central Missouri , got married and moved to Kansas City so I could begin studying at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MBTS), all within a few weeks! We joined Emmaus Church, our Sending Church, and have been deeply molded over the past few years by our pastors and community. Our time in Kansas City has given us an even greater love for the local church and declaring and displaying the gospel. My pastoral residency at Emmaus helped me discern what it means to be a pastor. In May, I'll graduate from MBTS with a Master of Divinity degree, and we'll head to New England!

About My Church Plant

Mount Hope Church was planted in February of 2016 in Bristol, R.I., as a response to the considerable lack of gospel-centered churches in smaller, rural areas in New England. Mount Hope exists as a community that follows Jesus together as they seek to declare and display His good news. I’ll serve as the pastoral assistant (with a plan toward eldership), which will allow the church to enter the next stage of ministry. I’ll supplement in preaching, help create church structures to care for members and sustain growth like community groups, and serve the college campus of Roger Williams University. We want to reach Bristol with the gospel.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions in North America are in desperate need of hope. Ultimately, the only hope that’s going to last - in this life and the next - is the hope of the gospel. North American missionaries build relationships and share this hope in their communities and beyond.

Pray with and for us! Pray that Jamie and I will have joyful dependence on Christ. Pray as we transition from Kansas City to Bristol. Pray for the faithfulness and unity of the members of Mount Hope Church, for the Spirit to work in the people in Bristol and for individuals and churches to give generously in sending us.


To make this vision of joining the ministry at Mount Hope a reality, we must be sent. By virtue of training and calling, we’re going to help a new church plant. But we’re asking those by virtue of circumstances and gifts to send us! Consider supporting us by giving financially each month.
