About My Family

I am married to Lindsey. W have four children: Abigail, Jeremiah, Leah and Nathaniel. I know I’m biased, but I believe I’ve got the best wife and kids. We enjoy working and playing together.

About My Church Plant

I grew up in small town in Texas and felt called to vocational church ministry at a young age. I started preaching at 18 and started pastoring at 22. For 10 years (2008–2018) I served as an associate pastor.

The church where I was serving wanted to plant a church in our neighboring community and asked me to lead this endeavor. We planted in 2019, just before a pandemic! However, we have seen the Lord do amazing things in our church body. There is no place I would rather be than at Christ Community Church.

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.


We have been having more and more people come to church. Pray that we would minister and build up the saints who have decided to call our church home. Pray that with the influx of people we would not lose our mission and values. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy. Pray that we would continue to see more people coming to know Christ!


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.
