About My Family

Lindsay and I have been married for a little more than 15 years. I’m the proud dad of Mason, Finley and Asher and will soon be dad to a girl.

I am pastor of So Church, a new Send Network church in the Lake Buena Vista area of South Orlando.

About My Church Plant

So Church is launching in a community where people are trying to find life in entertainment and escapism or by serving those who are trying to find it. We are beginning in this area so they may know true life comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions in North America are in desperate need of hope. Ultimately, the only hope that’s going to last - in this life and the next - is the hope of the gospel. North American missionaries build relationships and share this hope in their communities and beyond.


Pray for boldness to share the gospel and open hearts. Pray that through this ministry, more people would come to saving faith and live on mission. Pray for protection against attacks from the enemy. Pray for leaders for groups ministry. Pray for persons of peace in the Lake Buena Vista area. Pray for favor as we seek a location for weekend services.


Send notes of encouragement. Follow us on social media and keep in touch with what’s going on. Do ministry with us as part of your vacation or business trip. Move short- or long-term to the area to help launch the church.
Learn the ministry strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a missionary financially.
