About My Family

I was born and raised in London, England, and came to faith at the age of 19. I walked away from a television and theatre acting career to answer the call of God into full-time ministry. I have been in full-time ministry for more than 14 years, which has included roles as youth and young adult pastor, assistant pastor and director of evangelism.

I have a beautiful wife, Deborah, with whom I have been happily married for nine years. We are parents to two amazing children. Moses is 6, and Avi is 3.

About My Church Plant

My wife and I, along with our core team, are now planting a new church in Woodbridge, Va. Our church name is The Way City Church. We desire to be a missions-based, multi-generational, racially and economically diverse church who loves God passionately and has a zeal for the spiritual development of people.

God willing, our church launch date is February 9, 2020.

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
