Thank you for taking the time to see what planted is all about. Many of us have dreams in our hearts from God and like me, feel unqualified for the task we are called to. If you don't, well you simply aren't dreaming or praying hard enough! My heart through this podcast is to encourage your heart through the stories of the many that have gone before you. You are called, and you aren't alone. I pray as we go on this journey together we can both learn, grow, and accomplish the God-sized vision for your church or business. I don't have all the answers and I never will. I love to learn and I want to share all that I am learning from others with you. So what are you waiting for, let's go on this journey together!
In 2011, I was at bible school in Springfield, MO and I felt a burden for church planting. I moved to Binghamton, NY with a church planter,Will Hampton, and planted Two Rivers Church. Two Rivers Launched with 310 people in February of 2012. They are currently expanding to 2 more locations and have seen over 2000 salvations in the life of the church so far. In September of 2016, my wonderful wife, Lisa, and I felt called to be a part of a multi-site and multi-state church, Next Level Church, in NH. We quit our jobs and moved by faith to Saratoga Springs, NY to be a part of what God was doing at that location. Not expecting anything, but to work secular Jobs and to volunteer on the weekends we eventually became paid staff and became Production Director over 10 locations. God has truly been faithful every step of the way and never has left us without.
God is now calling us to step out in faith and plant VAST church in Fulton/Montgomery County, NY in September of 2018. God willing, this will be the start of a movement taking place and will be the first of many churches to come. I have a dream to plant 10 locations in 10 short years and see thousands of lives changed all over Upstate New York.
Through Planted Podcast, we will share the ups and down and learn from planters and entrepreneurs like you and I.
I am married to my lovely wife, Lisa, and have a beautiful daughter named, Emersyn.
