About My Family

My wife and I have been married for 20 years now. We have seven beautiful children and four grandkids. We own an 25-acre horse ranch in Bow, Wash. We enjoy any time we can get away from the day-to-day—from taking road trips to taking our children to Disneyland every other year and attending my wife's beautiful family reunion every opposite year.

When we are not working, conducting ministry or working the ranch, we take every opportunity to be together.

My wife and I surprise one another every other month with a weekend away or a date night focused on our marriage and weekend stuff with the kiddos. Family balance is huge for us.

About My Church Plant

I am the director of ministry for Cross Country Cowboy Church Network. We have four current church locations in Washington State that we call outposts. Our headquarters is located on our horse ranch called Heritage Ranch-Bow, LLC. I am the pastor of the Bow-Outpost currently.

We have a food ministry called the Mercantile that is run out of the ranch that serves families in need, like many church planters in our area. We also have a mission home for visiting missionaries and a long-term housing for missionaries in needed. Missionaries from all over the world stay on the ranch.

Our ranch in Sedro Woolley, called Heritage Ranch, will be a place for family ministry. We hope to encourage and enrich the missionary families in our area.

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.


Please pray for God's mighty provision for the ranch. I am still working a full-time job, and once the note is paid in full, we will be able to dedicate more time and resources to the ministry. Please pray for our next outpost location in Arlington. We are praying for a location. We have the cowboy preacher (C4 pastor).


The Ranch and C4 Ministry is open seven days a week. Between the mercantile ministry, horse care and projects on the ranch, there is always something to do! If God leads you to give, you can send any offering to 18244 Sam Bell Rd., Bow, WA 98232. You can give online - and use the Give Button.
