About The Gospel Van
Mission: To fulfill the Great Commission through homeless outreach, outdoor worship gatherings, social media, and serving whoever the Holy Spirit puts in my path.
Vision: To reach 1 million souls with the unconditional love of Jesus.
Just a few years ago, I was a drug addict, an alcoholic, a thief, a liar, severely depressed, and suicidal. Thankfully, God had another plan for my life. (Here's the link to my testimony.)
My heart goes out to anyone struggling with addiction, alcoholism, depression, and mental illness, simply because I've been there.
After surrendering my life to Jesus, I began to notice that my Bible talks a lot about freedom, surrender, and the importance of going into the world and sharing the love of Christ.
In 2017, I decided to go for it. Risking everything, I left my full-time job at a software company, my comfortable apartment in Charlotte, hopped in my pickup truck with my dog, and went.
I've literally been "homeless" for over 2 years now, simply traveling and loving whoever God puts in my path. It hasn't been easy, but God continues to provide for my needs every single day, and I wouldn't trade this life for anything.
We raised $30,000 for a Sprinter Van last year, and this quickly turned into a full-time mission. It's a joy and an honor to be out here sharing the Gospel - nothing is more fulfilling than loving my neighbors. Jesus is everything.
Thank you so much for your love and support. It's a miracle to even be alive today, and I love sharing this journey with you. Miracles still happen!!!

There's Freedom in Jesus
Everyone deserves to discover and experience true freedom in Christ.
If you're struggling today with drugs, alcohol, or something else, I get it. I really do. There's hope for you, and His name is Jesus. It would be a joy and an honor to walk this journey with you. Don't you dare give up. Reach out anytime.
