About My Family

I was born and raised in California before attending and graduating from Southern Seminary in Louisville, Ky. While in Louisville, I met Laura who was pursuing a degree in Christian counseling. After graduation, God called us to an established church in South Florida, where we served for almost nine years. While serving there, we had three children: Adalyn, Judson and Olivia. We enjoy drinking coffee, trips to Disney and trying new restaurants.

About My Church Plant

In summer 2017, God rekindled a desire to plant a new church in Laura's hometown of Lighthouse Point. He confirmed this call using Romans 10:14, "How will they hear without a preacher?" God made it clear that He was opening the door for us to plant a new church in Laura’s hometown of Lighthouse Point/Deerfield Beach, and we are now stepping out in faith to follow God’s call.

Now I serve as the lead pastor for Cross United Church.

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 “Send me.”


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 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.


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. Visit sendnetwork.com/PlanterFunding for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
