About My Family

I am a 21-year Army combat veteran. I have been married to my wife, Parri, for 28 years. We have two beautiful children, both grown.

Our son, Jacob, is 26 and married to Alyna. They live in Florida.

Our daughter, Madison, is 21, engaged to be married and lives in Branson, Mo.

Both our children serve the Lord, and we are very proud parents.

About My Church Plant

I have been in ministry for many years. During that time, I have served as a youth pastor, associate pastor and also as senior pastor. Additionally, I have served as an associational missions strategist, and I am a certified church consultant.

My passion is discipleship, plain and simple!

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 among the people to whom I speak. Pray that through our replanting process, more people would come to saving faith and live on mission. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst spiritual attacks from the enemy. Pray our church would embrace kingdom principles of evangelism and disciple-making.


Build relationships with missionaries and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Learn birthdays and anniversaries, so you can send gifts and cards.
Learn the ministry strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a missionary financially.
