About My Family

Olivia and I were high school sweethearts, having dated in the tenth and ninth grades. We were married one week after I finished college, December 16, 2011. We pray that one day God would provide us with a growing family, but for now, we're responsible for two dogs and a cat. The two of us started doing CrossFit a few years ago and have found it to be a great avenue for living healthily. More important, though, is the regular opportunity it affords to interact with and befriend non-Christians with the goal of sharing Jesus.  

About My Church Plant

While it's easy to describe the spiritual hardships of a place, the fact is, the deck has always been stacked against Christ and His church. Yet God relishes human weakness. It's the platform for proving Himself strong. That's the backdrop of our church, The Cornerstone at White Rock. Olivia and I are young and inexperienced, and the people with whom we meet aren't your typical church plant crowd. All skew more toward being empty nesters rather than newlyweds.

But we're convinced that as God calls us to leave behind things we once held dear for the sake of knowing Him and making Him known, He establishes localized families of faith where His people spur each other on to good works and love. Because He cares deeply for all people, we make it our mission to express to others the same kind of care God first lavished on us in Christ.    

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.

Pray

In it's early stages, The Cornerstone at White Rock is praying for five things:
–That God would lead us to two (or more) places where we could regularly interact with non-Christians.
–That no week would go by without having shared the good news of Jesus.
–To bathe our street or complex in prayer—that these would be places where God's name would be honored widely.
–For God to bring us in contact with formerly churched people and that He would also lead us to 30 young adults.
–That God would place an unmistakably God-sized vision in our hearts for how we might impact White Rock.
