About My Family

My wife, Caroline, and I have been married for almost five years. We have a beautiful 3-year-old named Bethany and have called Dallas-Fort Worth "home" for about the last five years. We love Jesus and live to proclaim the gospel as a family. We also enjoy watching TV shows together, playing games and joking around with each other. Some of our favorite books include: the Bible (of course), the "Master Plan of Evangelism" by Robert Coleman and "The Heavenly Man" by Brother Yun.

About My Church Plant

We are planting in Brooklyn, N.Y., because we have felt a specific calling to New York City (NYC) for the past seven years. Over the past two years, we have made numerous trips there and have developed a love for the people in Brooklyn. We are excited to join the believers in NYC to reach people for Christ Jesus and make disciples of the nations.

We are serving in a residency program with the Bridge Church in Brooklyn this upcoming year and are planting Brooklyn City Church as lead church planters. We long to plant a gospel-centered, Bible-believing church that furthers the gospel of Jesus to those in NYC and to those around the world. We move to Brooklyn May 11, 2019.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood.
Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.
