Here We Come…to Savannah!

Despite three faulty tires on the auto transport for our uhaul, and of course the exhaustive process of packing up an entire household, my family and I drove from Colorado, across Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and finally made it to Savannah, Georgia on August 6, 2019. We are now going through the process of unpacking boxes, getting furniture, and setting up our home. 

So what brought us to Savannah? The Holy Spirit led me to partner with Pastor Ryan Skarka to plant Spirit and Truth Fellowship in Savannah, Georgia. Pastor Ryan just graduated from Third-Year Ministry School at Charis Bible College. He is one of the most gifted Bible teachers I’ve heard. I got to know him when we went on a mission trip together to Brazil and am blessed to be his friend and to minister with him. God put Savannah on Ryan’s heart and after prayerful consideration, I felt led to join him on this adventure. 

Savannah is actually a sort of homecoming for my family—my wife and I lived in Savannah nearly 20 years ago when we were first married. It is a beautiful location, a city full of awesome people. We’re excited about bringing the good news to this area along with intimate worship. While many people in this area know of God, with the legalistic culture that dominates churches here, they may not know God. I hope to help change that. I will be starting a Charis Bible Study in Savannah in the near future, so if you’re in the area, be sure to contact me for more information.

I believe that the best foundation for anything in life is the Word of God. We’re standing on 2 Samuel 7:10, “Moreover, I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime” as the foundation for our move. We appreciate you agreeing with us that our transition will be peaceful, and that our move will be fruitful. We believe obeying God puts us in the best place possible.

During this season of building our ministry in a new geographic area, your support is greatly appreciated. If you believe in our vision of intimacy with the Father, I strongly encourage you to prayerfully consider becoming a monthly partner. You may become an automatic monthly partner at: Also, to sow a one-time gift, go to: Together we are spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ through God’s gift of music and worship. It’s great to have YOU along on this journey. We truly thank you for your prayers and support.
