Originally from Florida but Kansas City is now his home, he moved here in 2016 to help plant a church. He has a daughter named Jovie, which means joyful and that describes her perfectly.

Leaving home to plant a Church

Leaving home is a difficult thing to do. You’re leaving familiarity to go somewhere unknown. It is even more difficult to leave familiarity to go plant a church, because you don’t know if the church will work out. But, if you put your trust in Christ and you are listening to Him, He will provide.

Rooting your identity in Christ

It can be so easy to identify yourself with something worldly. Whether it be drugs, money, alcohol, or even social media and technology, making something an idol has never been easier. It is so important as Christians to keep our focus on Christ and to keep Him at the center of everything. 

God Answering Prayers

God will answer prayers. He will not leave you to hang dry, but sometimes the answer that we get from Him is not the one that we want. It is so important to put all your trust in God because when He says no to a prayer, it’s a part of His plan.
