Church Planting Missionary to Miami; Former Missionary to Chile

Biography

God first starting working in my heart about missions during a missions trip to Mexico. He had also given Anna a burden to reach Spanish speaking people with the Gospel at a missions camp she attended. She had a love for Christ and world-wide evangelism. Today we both share a strong love for our Lord and missions. I’m blessed to have her as the mother of our children and a life-long companion in marriage and ministry.

Anna and I have been married since September of 2004. God has blessed us with three precious daughters. Our oldest, Penelope, was born in November of 2006. Scarlett was born in October of 2008. In August 2012, Zaida, our youngest was born.

In late 2014, we started deputation to raise the needed financial support to live and minister in Chile. In early 2017, we moved to Santiago, Chile. We trained and ministered alongside Missionary Jason Holt and his family during our first two years before starting a church in December 2018. Soon after our arrival in Chile, Anna’s health began to steadily decline. She has two genetic mutations which prevent her body from detoxing itself. Due to Chile’s low environmental quality (water, soil, air) we had to leave the country in December 2020. We installed a young Chilean man as the pastor of the church before leaving.

We’re currently planting Hispanic churches in Miami, Florida. We continue with the same mission of evangelizing the lost, discipling believers, training leaders for ministry, and planting multiple churches.
