I’m married to the most amazing woman on the planet. Kristen. We have 4 children, 1 of whom we adopted from foster care. We are also currently active
foster parents, and on the journey of adopting a 5th child who is the infant sibling of the boy we adopted from foster care. We home school and enjoy being together as a family just hanging out, playing games, and hiking. Our involvement with Promise686 began when we started fostering a few years ago when Promise helped our church surround us with an amazing care community. I was on staff in the Children’s Ministry Department at Perimeter Church for the past 15 years, but felt God calling me away from my role as Children’s Pastor to something new. Through prayer, conversations, and truly the prompting of God, I joined the staff of Promise686 in March 2014 as the Director of Foster Care Initiatives. I love my role at Promise686 because I am excited about connecting with churches to help them become the hands and feet of Christ in the lives of foster children across Georgia. I believe the church at large is the answer to our orphan crisis both here and abroad, and I love that God called me out of a comfortable place to help make that a reality in our state.
What is Live the Promise?
Live The Promise, led by Promise686, depends on a coalition of churches working together. Promise686 mobilizes and serves churches and families to meet the needs of orphans and foster children. Specifically, Promise686 is a ministry that assists families and churches who have a heart for caring for orphans and foster children, by providing financial assistance, community support, and education. Promise686 believes the best way to care for orphans is through the family. In short, if “God sets the lonely into families” (Psalm 68:6), then so will we. We accomplish this in the foster care realm through our ongoing campaign – Live The Promise.
