About My Family

My family and I worked alongside church plants in Germany and Ireland for around five years before God called us back to the States. Upon our return, we felt God pulling us to minister somewhere in the U.S. that was spiritually similar to the post-Christian Europe we had just left. God eventually lead us and two other families to Vermont, which is where we currently live. We are in the process of preparing to plant a church in the city of St. Albans.

My wife, Kayla, and I love the great outdoors! Our favorite pastime is taking our son, Rowan, on nature walks and hikes. Kayla also enjoys cooking and having our neighbors over for dinner. I am an avid reader, loving everything from the Puritans to "Lord of the Rings." Rowan, our 6-month-old, currently enjoys tummy time and playing with his stuffed octopus.

About My Church Plant

Currently, my family and core team are serving at New King Church in South Burlington, Vt. We are working alongside and being mentored by this wonderful church until we launch our church plant in St. Albans, Vt., in early fall 2021.

Our team is currently focusing on growing together toward Christ, solidifying our church plant vision, mission and values and investing time in serving the community to which God has called us. Our mission as a church plant is to shine the light of Jesus to the wayward and lost, teaching them all He said and did.

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.
