Greetings family and Friends!
I have some exciting news to share with you about how God is moving in my life! At the beginning of August, I began the Cross Church School of Ministry in Northwest Arkansas after the completion of my undergraduate degree at the University of Arkansas. The CCSM is a one-year ministry residency program where I will gain on the job ministry experience with the opportunity to earn academic credit for a seminary degree as well as serve on various mission trip teams with the church.
I am humbled and excited to continue to pursue this opportunity not only to discover more of where the Lord is leading me in vocational ministry and learn more in the classroom setting, but also for the various opportunities to serve on mission trips over the next year! I am working in the preteen ministry with Cross Church Springdale this year while I study to receive credit towards a Master’s degree. Along with this, I have the opportunity to serve on three mission trips, one international and two North American trips, where we will come alongside church plants and missionaries connected to our church and partake in planting seeds of the gospel and showing the love of Christ to many people.
I had the privilege to go to Iquitos, Peru, on October 11-19th for my international trip. On this trip, we partnered with long-term missionaries to engage cross-culturally with the gospel in the city of Iquitos through street evangelism, hosting an outreach event, and leading an apolagetics conference for pastors in the area. We also traveled to an Amazonian village for a couple days (the village of Huashalado) to engage with the people there, as they do not currently have a church established among them. The goal was to build relationships with the people in the village and get a gauge of where they are spiritually as one of the guys we worked with is trying to start a church there and reach this un-reached group. Later on in the year, I have the privilege to serve on to two more trips that will take place in North America with the same goal in mind- sharing the great news of the Gospel. I am so excited about what God has in store in the coming months as I learn how to be an effective minister of the gospel, and grow as a young man, eager to faithfully serve God where he has placed me and I would love for you to be a part of how He is moving!
As I embark on this journey, I am asking for your partnership in 2 ways:
Pray. Please pray for me as I journey through this year and as I study or complete assignments for my classes. Pray that I will learn a lot through the ministry experience and that God would use me in ministry, both with the pre-teens and on the mission trips. Pray for my classmates and I as we travel on the various mission trips.
Give. I would love for you to partner with me financially for these endeavors! As aforementioned, I traveled this fall to Peru, and after Christmas I will be traveling to two North American cities to help church planters further the gospel reach in their area. These locations include: Phoenix, Pittsburg, Salt Lake City, Toronto, Ann Arbor (Michigan), Detroit, and a few others. I am raising money to cover the costs of my mission trips and have a total goal of $5,000. Would you prayerfully consider joining my team? By joining my support team, both prayerfully and financially, you will have a direct impact on hearts being touched by God’s Kingdom work.

“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
Thanks and God Bless,
