Better Together: Living on Mission with Gen Z

I am a New Jersey native. It was there that my family introduced me to Jesus and my whole family was very active in the church. I attended Asbury University in Wilmore, KY where he completed his Bachelor of Arts degree in Education. I also attended Asbury Theological Seminary. In 2005, I married my wife, Erica, finished my Masters in Biblical Studies at Wesley Biblical Seminary in Jackson, MS, and a year later, we and moved to Northern Uganda to be missionaries for two years training indigenous church planters on the Sudanese border. God then led us back to the United Sates and opened the door to serve on staff at Southeast Christian Church, in Louisville, KY as the disciple-making pastor for 5 years. In 2014 I became a campus pastor with Community Christian Church in Chicago. Then in 2017, I returned to World Gospel Mission, the same agency Erica and I served with in Uganda, and was invited to join the executive team. I now serves as the Vice President of Mobilization and Communications and I'm currently working on a PhD in Spiritual Formation and Leadership in Generation Z. We have three children, Jackson (11) and Caleb (9) and Ava (7) and live in Indianapolis, IN.
