How have you seen God working in your life?

My story is one who was near the church but far from Christ. Chasing life’s fleeting pleasures in search of fulfillment led to my discovery that there was none without Christ. Choosing Jesus as my Lord and Savior, led to a journey of discovering the many dimensions of a life in submission to Christ. I have learned what true obedience looks like. God has revealed His faithfulness in every aspect of my life. He has shown me that I take no credit for all He has done in my life. His grace has sustained by marriage, kept my family, empowered me to preach the gospel, and has guided me into planting The Font. God has revealed the sufficiency of His grace and has given me the boldness to trust in Him. God is teaching me to find rest in Him and has revealed how strong He can be in all my weaknesses and shortcomings.

How have you seen God working in your family?

The decision to plant a church has been a family affair. Vanessa has been more than a nurturing supporter. She has been a catalyst in praying for the church serving in our primary coordinator of our outreach initiatives. Her faith in what God has called us to do has encouraged me in ways that words fail to properly describe. She is the backbone of our family and is life partner in this new season that God has called us in.

How have you seen God working in your church?

The story of The Font is a story of divinely ordered series of responses to unexpected needs and events. I, along with a group of young creatives, passionate about Jesus, developed a burning desire to reach the people we had yet to see in our church. We had no intentions of launching a church. We were dreaming about a ministry that would meet them where they were. 

Four years ago we launched The Font TV, a ministry that would proclaim the gospel using online and social technology. Not long after we saw the need for community and launched online small groups. These groups grew into coffee shop meetings around the city on faith and life. As the groups grew, our desire for city renewal grew. But we knew we need a community on mission to do it. 

The Font was born and we haven’t looked back since. God has been gracious to us. The church continues to grow with a vibrant group of passionate people who desire to see God’s kingdom in South Florida.

Church Mission & Vision

The Font exists to bring faith to life; to see those who are far from Christ actively become like Him
