About My Family

I am from a missionary family who serves the Jewish people. My favorite ministry verse is Romans 1:16: "… for I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek." This verse is my favorite because it speaks to who I am, unashamed, and whom I love, the Jewish people and the rest of humanity.

In 1994, I left a lucrative career to pursue a Bible college education. My wife, Lori, and I dedicated ourselves to whatever the Lord chose for us to do for His glory.

Lori is an office manager for a very successful medical practice. We have been blessed with two wonderful daughters. Gabriella is 27, and Nicole is 23. Both are serving in the mental health field, one helping children with learning disabilities and the other helping people with substance abuse.

About My Church Plant

Expository teaching has always been my heart's desire. Loving people both saved and unsaved is at the heart of all I do for God and His glory!

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 for the planter’s family as they work together in ministry. 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 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.
Learn the church plant, its strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a church planter financially.
