About My Family

I became burdened and broken for Montreal before going there on a mission trip, which is where I met Madison. We have two precious children, Clara and Caspian, and are looking forward to becoming involved in what the Lord is already doing in Montreal for His kingdom.

About My Church Plant

Matthew 9:36 says, "Jesus looked out on the crowds and had compassion for them because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd." We believe that Montreal is deeply burdened and broken by sin and low exposure to the liberating truth and hope of the gospel. We know that one day God’s kingdom will be established, and Jesus will reign eternally in peace for those who know Him. We desire to plant a church that plants churches all across Montreal and Canada. We believe this will be accomplished through saturating every sphere of influence we have with the gospel.

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.”

Pray for the hearts and minds of Montrealers to be receptive to the gospel. Pray they would be broken by their sin. Pray the Lord will awaken them to seek Him. Pray they will desire freedom from their sin. Pray for our conversations and for us to represent Christ well. Pray for our marriage and for unity in our home and with God, and for protection from the enemy.


We would love to partner with you! We will have opportunities for churches and volunteers to join us in the ministry on the ground in Montreal. Join us by becoming long-term partners, financially or prayerfully. Pray for us and our Sending Church as we serve and reach Montreal with the gospel.
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. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
