About My Family

God has led my family all over the world, from Wyoming to East Africa to east Denver. Through all of that, He has cultivated in us a heart for the marginalized and a desire to plant churches that reach the least reached in our city.

Kayla and I have five kids—Micah, Julia, Elliot, Amelia and Scarlet. We love getting to serve God in such a unique setting.

About My Church Plant

Poverty. Crime. Addiction. Mental illness. Refugees. Middle class. All these words describe our ZIP code's demographics. We face a unique challenge in reaching a diverse range of people and believe that church planting, living missionally and incarnationally are God's plan A for reaching the unreached here in Aurora, Colo.

Our plan is to focus primarily on the poor, as Jesus did when He came, and to make disciples who can make disciples who are joyful and passionate about following Jesus. Our prayer is that a church will grow out of this sort of living.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood.
Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.


Pray that the Horne family will serve sacrificially and joyfully in their neighborhood. Pray the church will be established and will faithfully work to plant in other communities, too. Pray the Lord brings leaders who can help within the church. Pray for stamina, rest and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy.


Build relationships with a church planter, team members and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Learn birthdays and anniversaries so you can send gifts and cards.
