My Family

I married a beautiful woman, Tiffani Powell, on September 26, 2009. She is passionate about God, fears the Lord, and loves me (most of the time 🙂 ). We currently have two children, Noah and Micah. Noah was born February 27, 2012, and Micah was born May 31, 2013. Needless to say, we have a busy home, but we enjoy every second. They are gifts from God! As a family, we love to do anything outside. We also love to spend time at the beach when we have the opportunity.

On a personal level, I love sports (except for hockey and Nascar…but Nascar is not really a sport), I love to play golf, run, read, explore historical landmarks, and write.

Our Adoption

In 2012, God began stirring in our hearts a passion for adoption. We spent several weeks in prayer and became convinced God wanted us to adopt from Ethiopia. So, we trusted the Lord’s prompting and began the adoption process.

The journey has been one of great joy and great faith, and we look forward to seeing our child face to face. Our desire to adopt is directly rooted in the fact that our Savior has adopted us. While we don’t believe God calls everyone to adopt, we do believe every follower of Jesus has a role to play. Some are called to pray for orphans, some are called to foster, some are called to financially support.

From the beginning, our theme verse has been John 14:18.

“I will not leave you as orphans. I will come to you.”

My Current Role

I am currently seeking God on the next steps in our journey. I resigned from my position as a college/young adult minister at Campbell Street Church of Christ in October 2015.
