I am a pastor, a church planter, a Master Trainer (Church Planting) and a Certified Church Planter Coach. I have a BS in Business Administration, and 10 years in the business world before entering ministry. I excelled in developing people who could do their jobs, whatever that may be, at a professional level. I spent 6 years as an associate pastor before moving to Jacksonville, FL to start Faith Community Church (FCC), a prevailing model, attractional church. My wife and I are both ordained ministers and pastored FCC for 21 years before stepping down in 2021. I am now in the process of planting my second church, (a network of smaller church expressions),using a combination of both Missional Community. & Micro Church Networks. We currently have two Communities on Mission and are working on our third. I finished Fuller Theological Seminaries (FTS) Church Planting Coaching Certification and am currently coaching 5 church planters/coachees. I love the church planting space and working with Church Planters/Starters. Though I bring a lot of “real world” experience as a coach, I firmly believe that Jesus is the Lord of Church planting and is the one we ultimately seek for wisdom and direction. That starts and ends with Spirit dependent prayer.
