About My Family

Our family has been living in Queens, N.Y., since August of 2011. We are originally from Arkansas, but have served in churches in Mississippi and upstate New York. Kari and I have four children, Emma Kate, Ella, Lilly and Kaiden.

About My Church Plant

We have been planting since September of 2012, and our church's name is Connection Church. Our focus is to build a church family in context where people from all over the world and people from all different types of cultures have converged into one neighborhood. We strive to build community on the gospel of Jesus, see people come to faith in Jesus and sleepy Christians awakened to the beauty and magnificence of the gospel.

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.
