About My Family

My wife, Toni, and I have been married 30 years and have three adult children. Our son is a teacher and coach in an area school. He and a friend serve as our student ministry leaders. Our oldest daughter is completing a degree in special education. Our youngest daughter is just beginning her college journey and has joined her sister in serving as a leader in their campus ministry.

About My Church Plant

I have served in full-time ministry since 2002 as an associate pastor over student ministries. In 2019, I resigned my position to plant a church in the same community, as it is a rapidly growing and transitioning community that is under-churched.

We are focused on community-based ministries and taking the church outside the building and into the neighborhoods. Most of our church family members are first-generation believers so discipleship has been key to ministry and leadership development.

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 for boldness to share the gospel and open hearts among the people to whom we speak. Pray that through this ministry, more people would come to saving faith and live on mission. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy.


Build relationships with missionaries and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Learn birthdays and anniversaries, so you can send gifts and cards.
Learn the ministry strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a missionary financially.
