I was born in 1991 and grew up in Western New York. I placed my trust in Jesus Christ at a young age when I learned of my own sinfulness and heard of Christ’s love and forgiveness through His death and resurrection. Praise God that He provided a solid local church to disciple and guide me as I grew up. On my first SCORE mission trip to the Dominican Republic in 2008, the Holy Spirit confirmed in my heart a calling as a shepherd of God’s people. My local church affirmed this as I returned home and served faithfully.
I was sent off to Word of Life Bible Institute for 2 years of training and finished my degree at Lancaster Bible College. God used a summer internship with SCORE to direct my path to serve in the Dominican Republic as a church-planting missionary. After further training and ministry at my home church, I was ordained as a pastor and then sent off to the Dominican Republic, where I current serve as a church-planting missionary.
In 2015 God moved me to another part of the Dominican Republic called Constanza. I have been planting churches and working alongside of pastors in the region. During this time, I got married with a godly and beautiful disciple of Christ named Melisa, the daughter of one of those pastors. And we are serving our Lord together in the community of Cañada Seca.
