About

I accepted Christ as my savior in the Fall of 2000 after a fellow student named Luke suggested that I read the Gospel of John after spending the better portion of the semester asking him questions about Christianity and truth. 

Since then, I have spent time in the US Navy, back in college, seminary, missionary service, pastoral ministry, doctoral study, and now back to the mission field. Throughout all of that, the Lord has constantly equipped and prepared me to make disciples who make disciples. This calling is what drives me.

My wife, Heather, has served alongside me for over 12 years. She is my favorite and best ministry partner and travel buddy (she brings the snacks).

 

I have also had the honor writing the forthcoming book Peoples & Places: How Geography Impacts Missions Strategy (Wipf & Stock) and serving as a contributing author and assistant editor with George Robinson on Generational Disciple-Making: How Ordinary Followers of Jesus Are Transformed into Extraordinary Fishers of Men (Rainer).
