About My Family

I grew up in Alpharetta and got saved at the age of 8 through the witness of my mom. I felt called to ministry when I was 14. I went to the University of Georgia and met my wife there. We got married right after I graduated in June 2012. We have one daughter, Hannah Grace, who was born in February 2018.

About My Church Plant

We planted Christ Fellowship Church in October 2017 from Peachtree Corners Baptist. Our church vision is to glorify God through the gospel, in community and on mission. We seek to glorify God through the gospel by enjoying Jesus supremely in all of life. We seek to glorify God in community by becoming a countercultural community of love and service. We seek to glorify God on mission as we share the faith and care for the vulnerable.

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 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 these 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 these 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.
