My Background


My Background


I grew up not knowing my father and living with my mother until I was eight, when my mom's boyfriend abused me and I was thrust into foster care. I spent the rest of my childhood in various group homes and foster homes, yet always feeling "someone" was out there who cared about me.

When I was sixteen I had been invited to a vibrant church and the youth Sunday school teacher led me in accepting Christ as my personal Savior. In my early 20's, I joined a community of Christ followers my own age and started walking more consistently with the Lord.  I love serving others with my gift and talents, and continuing to grow closer to Jesus with my wife.

My Calling


My Calling


Because of my background I always felt passionate about serving locally because I felt like I would be turning my back on kids like me if I served globally. It was when the junior high pastor I worked under and was close friends with became a missionary to Indonesia that God softened my heart toward global missions. In 2008, I produced the Asia Pacific Experience at World Missions Summit and was challenged in one evening service to "give a year and pray about a lifetime." I responded, connected with a missionary doing media ministry, and spent six weeks working with Asia Pacific Media  in 2009, and then served as the Production Coordinator for one year from 2013-2014.
