About My Church Plant

I am associate pastor at Wilderness Baptist Church (Sending Church), as well as Sunday School teacher and director and worship leader. God has called me into church planting. He has shown me an area to plant where the need is great. He has also given me a three-fold message to take to the very rural and diverse community around the area we call the "Y." That message is hope, evangelism and prayer.

What the world needs now is HOPE! True hope is found in Christ, which leads to another point; the body of Christ needs to recenter around the mission of evangelism, disciple making and prayer. God has called me to reach as many folks as possible with this message. It is ALL about Jesus and many folks around the world need to know there is hope.

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.
