Story

I am a pastor kid who grew up in ministry. I went to Bible college initially to just play soccer. God used that as a platform to call me into ministry and specifically church planting. I knew God wanted me to help start and strengthen churches; I just didn't know where. I had coffee with a Converge missionary named JJ Alderman. He showed me a people wrapped in spiritual bondage. He showed me a country that holds over 30 unreached people groups. I chose to be a part of a team that is planting churches in the uttermost parts of the world.

The Opportunity

In a country that almost half the population is under the age of 18, Togo has a very young population. Young Togolese are more open to discussions of faith and the gospel than past generations. Togo has developing, urban areas that are perfect church plant locations that I will be helping to establish through local leadership.

The Need

Togo is the birthplace of witchcraft and 90% of the local people in my coastal region practice some form of Voodoo. It has a dark history of global slave trading and is still gripped by Satan's bondage. Togo is the 10th-poorest country in the world.

The Vision

I will be partnering with a team in Togo called the 6 Degree Initiative in an effort to bring The Light to this dark area. I will be coming on the team to be a church planting coach. I will build relationships with the local people, share the gospel and disciple and train future Togolese pastors. I will be a part of all church planting operations, such as selecting specific demographic areas that are prime locations of urban development to influence as many Togolese as possible in that area. I will also be working closely with all current church plant leaders and pastors in an effort to align our ministry and reach the most people possible with the gospel.
