About My Family

I am married to my best friend and the love of my life, Sarah. We are about to celebrate our seventh year of marriage, and we praise God for every day we’ve had together. We have three beautiful daughters: Adelina, Julianna and Anastasia.

Sarah and I were born and raised in Oregon. Jesus saved us while we were students at the University of Oregon. We moved to Louisville, Ky., in 2014 to attend the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. After five years, I successfully completed my M.Div. We started a business together, we had our three wonderful daughters, and we paid off all our undergraduate student loan debt! During that time God also led us to become members of Immanuel Baptist Church where I served as an elder.

We moved to Boulder, Colo., in November 2019 to establish Alethia Community Church, along with two other families.

About My Church Plant

God birthed the desire to plant a church in Boulder out of prayer. To this day we consider prayer to be our greatest strength for the work ahead of us. Our vision is to see the knowledge of God’s glory saturate Boulder as the waters of a sea. We are committed to making disciples of Jesus in the everyday stuff of life. God has called us to be salt and light in this dark city and to be faithful witnesses to the resurrected Lord Jesus.

Our desire is to establish a healthy church that is committed to the preaching of God’s Word, living in Christlike community, dependent on God-ward prayer, and eager to see God’s kingdom advance to the ends of the earth through planting new churches and sending missionaries.

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 my family as we 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.
