I was born to missionary parents in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in 1985. My mom & dad worked in a Christian school there until 1988, when they moved north to plant a church in the second-largest city of Cap-Haitien. As a child, I grew up on the church pew, seeing it blossom into a congregation of over a thousand people. My parents have also started an elementary school with a feeding program and a Bible school and have sent out four church planters. You can learn more about their work at rehobothhaiti.com.
I moved to the U.S. after graduating from high school in 2003. I went to Portland Bible College (Portland, Ore.), graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Theology in 2007. It was during this time that I felt the Lord begin to call me to pastoral ministry and lay a burden on my heart for the French-speaking world. After graduating from PBC, I went on to obtain a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies from Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Ky., graduating in 2011. Since that time, I have been working in North Carolina, paying back my student loans and seeking to discern the next step in the Lord’s plan for me. The Lord seems to be indicating that the next step is to return to the land of my birth to teach and preach the Word of God and help train up the next generation of church leaders. (You can read about the particular set of events that led to that conclusion here.)
Currently, I aim to raise $15,000 a year. Since the school does not pay me anything, that figure is what I need to pay for housing, food, transportation, as well as my obligations here in the U.S. (student loan payments) for an entire year.
