About My Family

My wife, Kaleigh, was raised on the Cape and is a true New Englander, we have two children. Our 4-year-old daughter is named Annabelle, and our son, Luke, is 1 1/2.

About My Church Plant

We planted Harbor Church in one of the most spiritually dark places in North America, our backyard. Cape Cod is one of the leading areas in all of Massachusetts and New England for homeless population and for heroin overdoses. We started a church that would be a beacon, a place of refuge (a harbor) in times of storm. We believe many New Englanders are in a desperate storm in life and are looking for hope. Our tagline, "Hope for the Journey," reflects our desire to point our neighbors and friends to the hope that is Christ.

We planted Harbor Church in the middle of Cape Cod, Hyannis Mass., because we believe this gives us the most strategic launching pad for starting more churches. In an area where 97 percent of the population doesn't claim Christ, we are hoping to be the first of many churches to come.

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


For churches as they prepare to send out missionaries and chaplains to push back lostness in North America. For receptive hearts among the people in communities where missionaries and chaplains will serve. For churches and individuals to partner with missionaries and chaplains and to give of their time and talents. For the Father to send more workers into His harvest to join missionaries.


Connect as a Sending Church or a Supporting Church with a missionary’s work. Commit to long-term missions support with your missionary partner. Be involved in supporting missionaries and their families. Pray for missionaries.
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. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
