About My Family

I am happily married to Syndi Jackson Poston, and together we have two beautiful children, Susanna and Daniel. We love spending time together as a family, traveling and seeing God work in and through us as we go. I am called to full-time ministry and to lead believers to obey the Great Commission locally and globally.

Before joining the North American Mission Board as a self-funded missionary, I served on staff at First Baptist Church Atlanta for 10 years as the minister of outreach and evangelism. My missional calling is to come alongside local churches to encourage and equip believers to share the love of God with the lost. This is accomplished through personalized leadership and local missions training.

About My Ministry

My mission is to equip believers to obediently follow Jesus Christ, particularly in the area of local missions. I serve with Great Adventure Missions. We are committed to spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide, starting at the local church level. Our mission is to encourage people to obediently follow Jesus Christ. We support missionaries and church planting efforts in North America and Southeast Asia. My passion is to challenge believers to live out their faith and be intentional about sharing the gospel by walking in the Spirit and being sensitive to His promptings. Many opportunities are overlooked because believers are not looking for or expecting God to be working in someone's heart.

In addition to local missions training, I enjoy the outdoors, reading, writing, preaching God's Word and ministering to those in need.
