Cross Cultural Ministry & House Church Leader | Humbolt County, California


THIS SPACE (Powered by A Jesus Mission)

What could and should Christian community look like over the next 50 years of our lives?

This Space will primarily be a fellowship for young adults (18-25)/(25-35) looking to explore a balance between inherited(institutional/analog) and emerging(networked/digital) expressions of Christian community in the midst of monumental societal transitions.

As a community practicing the way of Jesus, processing the complexities of life, and enjoying the company of friends the gatherings will revolve around three overarching themes: Creation, Formation, and Innovation. We’ll gather primarily in homes, but also in community spaces, pubs, and churches around northern Humboldt a few times a month.

There will be a visit and exploration of a different traditional church expression one Sunday a month with longer reflective retreats a few times a year.

This Space is meant to either complement your current church or become a core place of community for those who are inclined. Come to as many or as few of the gatherings that work for your current season.

The plan at times is also to host gatherings of worship and prayer for people of all ages to attend.

For updates, send us an email. Instagram to come soon.

Return to Arnhem Land (Australia Trip 2023)

In August of 2023 I joined pastor and Aboriginal Elder William Dumas to help relaunch their annual trip to the remote Aboriginal communities of Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory of Australia where we ministered and brought in supplies.

Here is a highlight video. For more information or to support, send me an email.




I came to faith at the young age of five on the redwood coasts of Humboldt County in Northern California, which has been and still is home to both my wife and I’s families going back multiple generations.

While my faith is my own it is rooted in the generational context of my parents and grandparents, who trace their born again experience to the Jesus People revivals of 1960’s and 70’s. Thus my faith is layered with an inherited organic west coast counter cultural charisma that leans into the Spirit, mixed with a love for studious dedication to knowing as much as we can about the truth revealed through God’s word and creation.

My wife Alysia and I have been married for almost a decade and together since 2010, we both have a dedication to seeing the love and justice of God encounter individual hearts as well as change unjust systems.

Prior Experience 

I have been involved in ministry in some form or another since I was ten. I have been a worship leader/youth leader for high school, college age groups and church camps. I have led some regional, cross cultural, and cross denominal gatherings for worship, prayer, and reconciliation. I have been on several trips overseas for ministry, projects, or fellowship including Mexico, Wales (UK), Uganda, Native American Nations, and Australia.

Education wise, I have a BA in Journalism (Public Relations) from Cal Poly Humboldt, an Advanced Diploma of Pastoral Ministry from Hillsong College (Hillsong Church, Sydney Australia), and am currently working on a Master of Theology from NAIITS: An Indigenous Learning Community.

I am coming up on a decade of learning from and working in ministry alongside Indigenous peoples in a local context in the US and Australia.

Alysia has worked in the education space for over a decade and currently teaches at a local high school. She also completed her BA from Cal Poly Humboldt and her Diploma of Pastoral Ministry from Hillsong College.
