My Story

I married my wife Julie in 2008. We are scheduled to leave our Alabama home and go to Japan in March of 2015. Since the year 2000, I've been leading worship in various capacities. I graduated from Jacksonville State University in 2011 with a degree in Broadcast Communications. Since graduating, I've worked professionally in audio and video production while continuing my passion for worship ministry. Julie and I are excited to use anything God has given us for His glory in Japan.



Ministry Focus:

Tokyo Metro Ministry Initiative

We're excited to be a part of TMMI. Our desire is to really embed ourselves in the community. By being creative and ground-breaking in our ministry, we want to actively reach out and pursue relationships in order to open doors for the gospel.

Julie and I are also looking forward to serving in the SonRise Cafe in downtown Tokyo. This cafe has a lively atmosphere 6 days a week with music, paintings, sculptures, and of course - great food and coffee. The cafe also hosts SonRise Church on Sunday Mornings where we hope to begin helping with the worship music.

The People:

Japan is the 2nd largest unreached people group in the world. Out of 127 million souls, less than 0.5% are Christians. 30,000 people die each year of despair. There are approximately 600 suicides per week. While Japan is well developed, they are spiritually impoverished and in desperate need of The Way, The Truth, and The Life.

Primary Prayer Request:

Julie and I are still raising support in order to leave on schedule.

Please pray for financial provision. Pray about becoming part of our support team!

Pray for language learning and other prep work before our departure.

Pray for the Holy Spirit to stir the hearts of Japanese people to embrace the gospel.
