I am a native of central Virginia where I met Bárbara; who had come to my high school from Brazil as an exchange student. We were married shortly after graduation and now have three children Patrick (11), Tabitha (8), and Olivia (5). In 2012 we celebrated 20 years of marriage.
Prior to receiving Christ I worked in the hospitality industry managing multiple national franchise hotels and eventually became a Regional Manager overseeing as many as nine hotels. I have a BS in Religious Studies from Liberty University and am currently pursuing an MA in Global Studies from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.
Bárbara and I began Living Bread Ministries in early 2004 and have seen the Lord grow the ministry from vision to reality. LBM has launched national led church planting ministries in Brazil and Thailand and has partnered with them to plant numerous churches among the urban poor. Lord willing, LBM will continue to grow and launch interdependent church planting movements among the poor and needy around the world.
