I hope this article gives you a clear picture of our family and our heart for this city of Orlando.
I accepted my personal call to ministry at the age of 16. It was my desire then, and is now, to pastor a radical life-giving church that would experience the same phenomenal events that the first church did in the Book of ACTS in the bible.I am originally from Nashville, Tennessee, my wife Missy from Miami, FL, and we serve as the lead pastors of C/LIFE Orlando.
Missy and I met each other in January of 2004, and then in August of 2007, I convinced her to finally marry me! In 2006, after spending time studying at a local community college, attending Southeastern University and interning at a church in Nashville, we pursued an opportunity to serve on staff with Pastor Jim Raley at Calvary Christian Center in Ormond Beach, Florida.
In 2012, we felt God leading us to step into our next roles as senior pastors. In pursuit of that, Missy and I attended and graduated from CMN church planting boot camp and proceeded with the vision. With prayer, fasting, guidance, counseling with our senior pastor, and other mentors, we knew Orlando was now the place for our family!
So if you are still reading this, maybe you want to know something fun!
My favorite thing to do is hanging out with my wife and two sons. I also enjoy baseball, watching as much football as humanly possible, and deer hunting.
Okay, it’s Missy’s turn to write something! This is Missy, and I love hanging with my family, working out, and of course what girl doesn’t like to shop!
ULTIMATELY, ITS REALLY NOT ABOUT US. Our desire is to point everyone we come in contact with towards Jesus.
We will always present a passionate approach to God’s word and display the ability to reach across cultural barriers. Inside of all of this, we want the consequence of what we do to instill a desire and expectancy in people’s heart for revival in their lives, families, and in this city.
