Im a husband to Tonya, father to my 3 kids and a church planter. I pastor Church at the Creek in Anderson Creek NC and oversee a small network of churches called Open Arms International Ministries. You can visit our main website @ www.oaim.net. We have short term mission opportunities in the Philippines throughout the summer months.
