About My Family

I am a former missionary to Cambodia. I studied at Liberty University's online school but have not yet finished my courses. My family and I stayed in Cambodia for three and one-half years and, by God's grace, were able to plant a church, which is being blessed by God tremendously. The church has three outreaches, one school and, most important, the church is growing in quality and quantity.

My wife and I have five sons, one of whom is serving as an associate pastor and mission and outreach director in BCI International.

About My Church Plant

The name of our church plant is Grace Christian Fellowship (GCF) Belleville in Belleville, New Jersey. Our church has 45 members and three small groups. We meet virtually for weekly prayer meetings every Friday evening at 7:30, for discipleship training every Friday from 6 to 7 p.m. and every Sunday from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.

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 the planter’s family as they work together in ministry. Pray the church will be established and will faithfully work to plant in other communities, too. Pray that the Lord will rise up leaders who can help me in the church. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy.
