I currently post three to five times a week at ConnectMissions.org.
I am a husband and father of three. My wife, Michelle, and I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I like movies and watching football. I was raised in California and am an alumnus of Georgia Tech, Theta Xi Fraternity, Christian Campus Fellowship, and Emmanuel Christian Seminary.
After serving briefly as a campus minister in Brazil and Spain, my wife and I moved to New Orleans in 2007 to start Connect Missions. In 2008, I began partnering with Cru and Impact, serving as their director in New Orleans until 2013. In 2009, some young leaders from our church started Crescent City Cafe under the covering of Connect Missions as a ministry partner. In 2013, I became the Director of Crescent City Cafe and it came fully under Connect Missions, continuing to serve the poor and marginalized people of New Orleans with dignity.
My Testimony and Ministry Background
I accepted Christ at the age of seven. As a young teenager faith was important to me and this carried over into adulthood. Born into a Catholic family, I was raised Southern Baptist. In college, my faith was strengthened by my involvement in my fraternity, my campus ministry, and my church. The seminary I went to is part of the Restoration Movement. As a seminary intern, while at Emmanuel, I served in a PCUSA campus ministry. After graduating with an MDiv, I went overseas with Christian Missionary Fellowship Int’l. In 2007 I served on staff with Journey Christian Church for a year while we started Connect Missions. I then served as an elder until 2009 when we started doing Organic Church. Now we go to Carrollton Ave Church of Christ, a diverse, Bible believing, outward-focused family of believers in Mid-City New Orleans.
