Travel, accommodations, and one love offering


My life began the day I decided to end it. In 1998, at the age of 27, I was in a solitary confinement cell facing the rest of my life in prison. I had no reason or desire to live. Just before I took my own life, I cried out to Jesus and he answered. My relationship with Jesus began at that moment and he has been transforming me ever since. All I’ve accomplished is because I simply said “YES!” to Jesus and continue to do so every day. I’ve been blessed to serve the kingdom of God in various and diverse ways. These experiences shaped who I am today and honed my vision to a laser sharp focus— to declare the gospel and equip God’s people to understand the fullness of what the gospel accomplished. My passion is to bring hope to the hopeless. My mission is to equip the Church. I teach how to effectively share the gospel and use testimonies so that others can overcome the devil, set captives free, and hasten the LORD’s return.

Ministry Experience

Missionary / Preacher / Teacher / Church Planter

When the LORD led my family to help bring the gospel to the least reached regions of Asia, I thought it would be through missional business. Though I had been in active ministry since being born-again, I’d always been self-supported through entrepreneurial endeavors. Within the first year of our living overseas, the LORD made it clear I was to be an occupational minister of the gospel.

So, since 2018, I’ve served the LORD full-time as an international gospel preacher, teacher, and church planter. It has been my privilege to serve numerous organizations by investing in their establishment and growth. I serve whole-heartedly, without reservation, and with only one agenda— to freely give all that I’ve been freely given so that Christ may be made known to the fullest extent and the furthest reaches of the world.

Preacher / Prison Pastor / Prison church planter

The LORD has anointed me as a catalyst to break the yoke of hopelessness and the cycle of despair, bringing the broken and desperate to new life in Christ Jesus. Ministering in places like prisons and addiction recovery centers remains one of my favorite and most fruitful endeavors. Many thousands of souls have been directly impacted through these efforts and hundreds of thousands indirectly.
