About My Family

My wife, Chanel, and I are lifelong residents of the New Orleans area. We met in 1997 as two unsaved youngsters searching for meaning in life. On a construction site in 2004, I was introduced to the gospel by a pipe fitter named Bruce Grant. I gave my life to the LORD and my wife followed not long after. We married in 2005. Five months after our marriage, hurricane Katrina caused us to relocate to Hammond, La. After a three year relocation, GOD called my family and me back to New Orleans to attend New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, where I received associate's, bachelor's and master's degree in apologetics.

My wife and I are devoted parents to three girls and one boy: Rayelynn, Jajuan, Troiana and Tamera.

About My Church Plant

Cross Culture Community Church was birthed from a multiplicity of ministries of which my wife and I were part, such as marriage strengthening, Church without Walls (a homeless ministry we started) and an evangelism group. The Lord gave me a burden to plant a church where these different walks of life came together under one roof in the worship of Him through salvation in Christ to become disciple makers of Him. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are a multicultural, multi-generational, multi-echelon church planted in the historic neighborhood of Gentilly in the heart of New Orleans. Our vision is to become a church planting church unleashing disciplemakers into a world that desperately needs Jesus.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a 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


For churches as they prepare to send out missionaries and chaplains to push back lostness in North America. For receptive hearts among the people in communities where these missionaries and chaplains will serve. For churches and individuals to partner with missionaries and chaplains and to give of their time and talents. For the Father to send more workers into His harvest to join these missionaries.


Connect as a Sending Church or a Supporting Church with a missionary’s work. Commit to long-term missions support with your missionary partner. Be involved in supporting missionaries and their families. Pray for missionaries.
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.
