I planted Four Corners Church in Newnan, Georgia, three and a half years ago with Acts 29. Our church plant was a bit peculiar being that the calling to plant was birthed out of first seeing an interview in 2006 with Pastor Mark where he described his week of ministry as a pastor who was on mission in the city, reaching the broken, burned out, and hopelessly lost. After that I was convicted: I quit my easy church job, got a job at a bar, and started reaching out. Before long, I had a vision and planted the church in Newnan, factoring in a one-year leave where Jana and I moved to London to pursue my second master’s degree in hermeneutics at the London School of Theology. The church was planted and today has over 300 in weekly attendance.
Jana and I have been married for eight years and have two kids. Our daughter is Tovah (2), and our son Jude (13 months).
I joined the Lead Pastor Residency Program because I deeply love the ministry of Mars Hill and now have the oppurtunity to serve as the lead pastor of Mars Hill Ballard.
