ABOUT ME

I started pastoring in 2000 and was initially involved in youth and children’s ministry. In 2001, I entered the world of church planting and have planted or assisted in starting churches in the USA, Africa, and Asia. I am currently planting a church in the Philippines, which is part of the RockFish Church family. RockFish Church has 3 campuses within the USA.

MINISTRY COACHING

I am an author, a public speaker, and a ministry coach/consultant. One of my specialty areas is ministry consulting and leadership training. In my 22+ years of ministry, I have planted several churches and provide oversight for over 21 churches worldwide. The same care I give that network of churches is offered to those who simply need a friend in ministry or a “fresh pair of eyes” on a situation.
