God designed His church not to function as a fort but as a FACTORY! While a fort protects, a factory produces.We are called by God to produce Christ like disciples who faithfully represent Jesus in their world. We are called to be “salt” and “light” which means we must engage the decay and darkness of the world and join King Jesus in His mission to rescue perishing people (Matthew 28:19-20).
We are seeking to operate as God’s Missions factory by following Christ’s prescribed strategy in Acts 1:6-8 of sharing the transforming truth of the gospel from our neighborhoods to the nations. We are convinced that every one should participate in the mission endeavor and experience the joy of serving the eternal purposes of King Jesus (1 Peter 4:10)
HOMETOWN: Various (grew up as an MK in Central and South America)
EDUCATION: Bachelor’s Degree from Samford University // Master of Arts in Missiology from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary
MINISTRY PREPARATION/EXPERIENCES: Growing up as a missionary kid allowed me to have multiple opportunities for both intellectual and spiritual growth. I became truly bilingual in Spanish and English at a very young age. I was also exposed to multiple cultures and experiences during my time in Mexico and Ecuador. My spiritual growth during this time was also considerable. As a teenager I had the opportunity to be mentored by my father in disciple making and missions. I participated and at times was even able to assist in disciple making programs on the field. Since 2007 I have now served as the minister of missions at FBC Montgomery. During this time God has continued to grow me through experience of leading the church to be on mission from Montgomery to the Nations.
