About My Family

I am planting Compass Church in the San Diego State University area. I’m married to Jessica Worcester, with whom I fell in love while doing college ministry together. We have a 2 1/2-year-old son named Samuel and another baby boy on the way! I graduated from from the University of Oklahoma (OU) with a degree in film and video studies and received my master's degree in theological studies from Gateway Seminary.

About My Church Plant

Compass Church is a new church in the San Diego State University area designed to reach students and the surrounding community. Our purpose is to point everyone to their purpose in life. Our vision is to become a sending base to send people all over the world with 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.

Pray that unsaved people will discover their purpose in Christ. We are praying for 100 baptisms in the first three years. Pray for leaders to be raised up. Pray with us for a church planter to be raised up within three years and for six others to start our church planting apprenticeship program. Pray for God to continue to send laborers into this mission field.


Please pray about partnering with us through faithful prayer, serving as a short-term missionary to help us with outreach events and/or supporting us financially.
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.
