I was saved at the age of 7 during a Vacation Bible School, however, not being raised in church; I did not follow the Lord in believer’s baptism until I was 11 years old. It wasn’t until the next spring, during a transition year from pony league to little league, that I met Pastor Wayne Cofield; my new baseball coach! In order to “secure” my spot as a starter, I began attending services at Whitfield Baptist Church. It was there that God started a work in my life that has led me and my family to reach the people of Argentina and the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
At age 16, I had the opportunity to visit Peru, South America on a ten day missions trip. There, I met Veteran Missionary Austin Gardner, now Pastor of Vision Baptist Church. The following year, I returned to Peru for six months in order to learn and train on the field, for the field. I also spent 6 years in the Army, serving 16 months in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom from June 2006 to September 2007. The Lord used that time in my life to teach me the discipline I lacked and the intestinal fortitude needed to accomplish His good work!
The past 9 years, I have been privileged to grow and train under Pastor Tony Howeth of Newton Baptist Church. I have seen first hand the relationship model of Paul and Timothy through Pastor Howeth’s leadership. I am very grateful for the Lord using Newton Baptist Church to be not only our sending church, but our family!
Today, I am blessed and encouraged to have not only the obligation, but the opportunity to serve Jesus as a church planting missionary to the field of Argentina! It is our intent and goal to replicate the biblical model through which I have been trained to the Argentine people of Argentina!
