About My Family

I grew up in the suburbs of Boston, 12 minutes from the stadium of the New England Patriots. Because I raised in a Christian family and attended an evangelical church, I heard the gospel at an early age. However, I quickly realized that this was not the norm in Massachusetts.

Kate grew up in West Virginia in a loving Methodist home. By the time she arrived at American University in Washington, D.C., she had a strong desire to continue growing in her faith.

It was in D.C. that Kate and I met through our local church. I had deliberately avoided going to college in Boston, earning a bachelor's degree in philosophy from George Washington University in D.C. However it was during my college years that I felt the call to ministry and to return to New England.

The Lord blessed us with Allie in September 2015 and Henry in December 2017.

About My Church Plant

In August 2020, we are moving to Boston, Mass., where I will serve as the church planting resident at Hope Fellowship Church. I will spend one year raising support, gathering a core team and getting to know the Bedford area.

Our vision is to plant a gospel-centered, healthy and multiplying church in Bedford, Mass. Trinity Church of Bedford exists, “to make disciples of Christ from Bedford to New England to the ends of the earth, all for the glory of God.” Lord willing, we will covenant together and hold public worship services in fall 2021.
