About My Family

My family and I moved to Homestead, Fla., in summer 2011. I was raised in Kansas City, Mo., and my wife, Elizabeth, is a missionary kid who was born and raised in Venice, Italy. We both sensed a calling to be in a diverse culture that needed the gospel, and when we had the chance to move to South Florida, we took it and have never looked back.

We have four amazing children. Jake was born in 2008, Luke was born in 2006, Alissa was born in 2004, and Chris was born to his parents in 2003, but was officially adopted into our family in August of 2019. Chris has been for us a testimony of “love your neighbor as much as you love yourself.” We moved to Homestead intent on loving our neighbors. At that time, Chris was a 10-year-old boy down the street. We didn’t know at that time that six years later, we would get to adopt him into our family.

About My Church Plant

We started our church in November 2013 as Core Community Church. We met in a school here in town, setting up services every Sunday for years. We saw the Lord continue to fill our church with beautiful diversity, as people from many nationalities were finding a church where the focus was the life-giving message of the gospel. We also prayed that the Lord would establish our church here that we could see the gospel proclaimed for generations to come.

We saw the Lord answer that prayer on October 15, 2017, when a local Lutheran church voted to give us their property—a $2.2 million property on three acres of land just blocks north of downtown Homestead! We spent the next few years renovating the facility and moved in September 29, 2019 and officially changed our name to Restoration Church Homestead.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is person who, in response to God’s call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at “Send me.”

As a 501(c)(3) organization, the North American Mission Board respects the intent of givers while retaining discretion over the use of all gifts. Any gifts received above the specific need will be applied where the need is greatest.

Pray

Pray for the Lord to mature our believers so they can grow and be leaders for the kingdom in this city that so desperately needs the gospel. Pray for Jesus to restore the hearts and lives of this city we love. Pray for churches to partner in unity for the good of the city. Pray for wisdom, sensitivity to the Spirit and endurance for the leadership to run the race for the long haul in a challenging city.

Participate

You can participate in a few specific ways. Pray for us, and then write us and tell us how you are praying for us. Support our church financially as we do ministry in an expensive city and serve many under-resourced families in our community. Encourage leaders through cards and gift cards so we can date our spouses and make memories with our families amidst the trials of ministry.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant.
