About My Family

My wife, our daughter and I moved to Alaska in May 2016 when God called us into ministry from Atlanta, Ga. Since then we have added another daughter to our family. Our family of four (Preston, Meagan, Scarlet and Linya) lives on the northeast side of Anchorage, very near the Mountain View neighborhood. We left Georgia because we knew God was calling us to reach the people in this area by using the things we've been through in the past to relate to them. 

About My Church Plant

We are very fortunate and blessed to be leading two ministries here. We started with The Centre first in August of 2016. It is an outreach and mentoring ministry to at-risk youth in Anchorage. Our focus is on the Mountain View neighborhood and surrounding areas. The kids here face some major obstacles, such as drug and alcohol addiction, abuse of all kinds, predation, gangs and violence in and out of the home. We also have our church plant, Adelphoi, which started around Easter 2017. There is so much brokeness and hurting here, but we see that as more opportunity to see people come to life through the power of God. This is one of the hardest areas I have witnessed for light to penetrate the darkness. We are immensely honored to be serving here and would love to see others partner with us here in Anchorage, Alaska.

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 namb.net/send-me.
