About My Family

Stephanie and I have been married for 26 years. We have five children from the ages of 14 to 22: Hannah, Grant, Joshua, Ethan and James. We value family worship, personal evangelism, home schooling and training up the next generation to effectively share their faith with unbelievers.

About My Church Plant

In the past 24 years, we have started multiple churches in San Diego, Canada and Alaska. We want to live our lives on mission, bringing the lost to Christ. We love to identify, train and encourage other church planters and their wives. We currently have three churches here on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska and desire to have a network of house churches that can quickly grow and multiply to reach the lost.

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.

For the multiplication of churches here on the Kenai Peninsula. For our lost friends to come to faith in Christ. For continued opportunities to share the gospel. For God's provision for our ministry. For our newest graduate's transition to a different university and major.


Pray for our effectiveness in sharing the gospel. Pray for our family and church planting multiplication.
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.
