About My Family

I am from Winston-Salem, N.C., where I was raised in a Christian home, but didn't believe the gospel for myself until I was 20. Afterward the Lord gave me a passion for taking His good news to areas where He was not as well known. This started in the Army, where I served for nine years and became attracted to the mission field.

I developed a passion for church planting in an area where not many people know Christ to be a light in a spiritually dark area. This took me to Calgary for the first time in 2016, again in 2017, and then I fell in love with the people and the opportunity for a gospel presence to be brought there. I'm currently raising support to move to Calgary in July 2020.

About My Church Plant

Calgary is one of the fastest growing North American cities. It has a diverse population where nearly 30% of its total 1.4 million citizens have been brought to the city for many reasons. The nations are here, and Revelation 7:9 describes "a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, which no one could number, standing before the throne and before the Lamb." They sing praises for the sacrifice the Lamb paid. I am convinced that at least some of that number is in Calgary.

In this process, Acts 28:31 has been a major encouragement for me. Paul in Rome, no matter what, "proclaim[ed] the kingdom of God and [taught] about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance."

I will be serving with Hope Church in Symons Valley with the goal to be sent out to plant a church in another community.

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.
