About My Family

I am husband to Jill and father to five children. They come before my churches. We love the outdoors and being active—my kids are very active :). We enjoy hiking, swimming, boating, riding bikes and playing at the skate park or playground. We enjoy riding dirt bikes, four-wheelers and go-carts in the summer and snowmobiles in the winter. We love our movie nights and popcorn (Friday nights).

One of our favorite times of year is when we can go to an all-inclusive resort in Mexico, having a week to unplug from technology and check the family-only box. We love to be challenged, and we love finishing a task together.

About My Church Plant

I'm about keeping the main thing the main thing—loving God and loving people. I lead by example and will always be the first to jump in and serve, especially if a task is not getting done.

We have two churches, one in Arlington, Wash., (Sunday service at 10 a.m.) and one in Stanwood, Wash., (Wednesday service at 6 p.m.). We go down to Mexico as a family every November to serve at an orphanage and usually lead a team of 40.

Our impact groups meet during the week and have a goal of accomplishing one outreach event every quarter. Our desire is to connect with the last, least and lost one barbecue at a time.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions in North America are in desperate need of hope. Ultimately, the only hope that’s going to last - in this life and the next - is the hope of the gospel. North American missionaries build relationships and share this hope in their communities and beyond.


Pray for boldness to share the gospel and open hearts among the people to whom we speak. Pray that through this ministry, more people would come to saving faith and live on mission. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy.


Build relationships with missionaries and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Learn birthdays and anniversaries, so you can send gifts and cards.
Learn the ministry strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a missionary financially.
