I want to inspire hope in everyone i meet
At age 18 I was facing a life sentence for crimes related to gang banging and drugs. While in prison I surrendered my life Jesus and I heard God whisper, “I’m going to get you out of prison to plant churches.” Through a series of miracles, the prison doors opened for me after 8 years later.
Now every day I wake looking for ways to inspire the hope of Jesus in everyone I meet. One of the most significant ways I look to do that is to raise up (aka disciple) people to plant churches in inner cities all across the world. This has led me to start Every Inner City, a network of inner city churches across the world.
But planting an inner city church has a set of unique challenges – and because of this I’ve worked with a number of amazing people to develop tools, including Side-Hustle Pastor, to help inner city churches and their leaders flourish.
I’m also a husband, father, author, speaker and pastor at Mission Church in Omaha, Nebraska.

Planting a church is hard, no doubt about it. But what’s practically impossible is trying to do it alone. If you have a desire to plant an inner-city church our team would love to come alongside you to equip you with tools that both I and others have used to plant churches all across the world.

Every Inner City has a mission to saturate every inner city with diverse, hope-filled churches – together we’re planting a network of churches across the globe.

Planting and running an inner-city church has a set of unique challenges. In order to sustain your ministry you may have to supplement your income. Out of this the Side-Hustle Pastor podcast was born. On the podcast we discuss financial stability while running an inner-city ministry.
