About My Family

My wife, Rose, and I have three children ages 7, 9 and 11. We moved to Baltimore in 2012 to plant a church among the unreached people groups there. We have served the Lord in Bamako, Mali, Dakar, Senegal and in Bazil. We are passionate about reaching Muslims and the lost for Christ. We are family-oriented and love to see the lost coming to Christ through building bridges through Christ-like relationships. We love family singing and worshiping God.

About My Church Plant

We are about building the kingdom of God here in Baltimore by reaching unreached people groups. Many internationals, diplomats, dignitaries, international students and visiting scholars come to the D.C., Baltimore hubs for many different reasons. As our city is one of the strategic ports of entry for foreign nationals, God has given us a burden to reach them with the gospel. We don't have to travel far to reach them as they are in our communities.
Jesus died on the cross for all mankind, including these people who are part of God's redemptive plan of salvation. Jesus commanded us to love our neighbors and enemies. We are reaching them one by one at all cost. These people claim to know God but have no knowledge of Christ's redemptive plan of salvation. We are the ones to show them the way through the love of Jesus Christ. What if we do nothing to share the love of Christ today? What if we just see them as others see them? What will the outcome be for our country and future generations? But what if we join hands and reach them with the gospel of Jesus Christ? God will be glorified, and we will bring lasting change to our cities and advance the kingdom of God here on earth. (Matthew 5:44-45)

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
