About My Family

My wife, Nicole, and I met in Orlando where we were saved by Jesus, served and led together in college ministry for a few years. We have been married for 10 years and have three beautiful children, Malachi, Josiah and Genesis.

I have felt the call to plant since 2015 and was trained through the Summit Collaborative Church Planting Cohort, while working on a Master of Divinity degree in church planting from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

We are excited to plant One Family Church as we believe the brokenness of our world has no other solution except the hope of the gospel. Central Florida does not need a “Magic Kingdom,” but a heavenly one, and Nicole and I can’t wait to partner with other faithful churches throughout Orlando to advance the gospel and expand God's heavenly kingdom!

About My Church Plant

Our vision statement is: to see those who are strangers to God become members of his household in Orlando and around the world.

This vision flows out of Ephesians 2:17-22 where Paul says: And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.

Our mission statement therefore is: to glorify God and expand His family, by making disciples.

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.

Also, please prayerfully consider partnering financially and give to the mission of planting a multiethnic, gospel-centered, multiplying church. Visit our website for more info.
