About My Family

I grew up in east Texas, and my wife, Gabi, is from the Chicago area. Before we met, we both ended up in Dallas-Fort Worth, me for ministry and her for nursing school. We met a few years later at our church and have been married almost three years. We hope to start our family soon! (especially Gabi—big time, Gabi)

About My Church Plant

Mission City Church invites everyday people to join the mission of Jesus. This idea came from a powerful personal experience with God. After spending my early years chasing everything the world had to offer, Jesus won my heart when I was about 20. In Jesus, I found not forgiveness to receive, but a purpose to serve. Suddenly, I wasn't just "saved" by God. I was involved in His cause.

We believe that Jesus is still inviting everyday people to join His mission. That's why we are moving to our nation's leading city—to lift up the only cause that will ultimately matter—the mission of Jesus.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood.
Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.

As a 501(c)(3) organization, the North American Mission Board respects the intent of givers while retaining discretion over the use of all gifts. Any gifts received above the specific need will be applied where the need is greatest.


Pray for Gabi and me as we complete a 12-month church planter training program before launching Mission City Church in mid-2020. Pray that we acclimate to the city and raise up the team members and resources needed for a new church to thrive in a place like New York.


We need people to pray consistently for this mission, to sacrifice financially for this mission, and to move into the city with us to chase this mission. (But you knew that already.) We also love connecting with like-minded organizations and people, so help us connect if you know anyone we should know!
Learn the church plant, its strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a church planter financially.
