About My Family

My wife, Helen, and I have two boys, Elijah and Ezra. Both of us grew up in Maryland. In 2016, God opened our eyes to the spiritual need in Frederick, Md. We moved into the city, believing God has called us to reach the spiritually homeless with the gospel.

About My Church Plant

Home Church is a new church being planted in the Urbana area of Frederick, Md. Our vision is to make Jesus known by making disciples and planting churches. God opened doors for Home Church to launch out of The Ranch, a drug and alcohol addiction treatment center in Frederick. We believe the Holy Spirit will save, redeem and heal those who are separated from God and will bring many home into a relationship with Him. Currently, 90 percent of Frederick County is not connected to a gospel-preaching church. We believe God has called Home Church to be part of changing that number.

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.
