Sonny's Life Collage

My Story

I was born in New Jersey, transplanted to Texas, got my first job (McDonalds) in Pennsylvania, started preaching in Missouri, married my best friend in Arkansas, became an author in Illinois, and now I’m a full time missionary to America. It’s been a wonderful ride thus far!

When I’m not on the road conducting Gospel meetings, seminars, and youth events, I am one of the pulpit ministers for the Union Central Church of Christ outside of Paragould, Arkansas. I am also the founder and director for the Missionaries for America Program that teaches young people to view their own community as a mission field.

Between my second and third years in college (Crowley’s Ridge College and Harding University), I married my beautiful wife, Cindy. We have two boys, Bryson (admissions rep for Crowley’s Ridge College), Gabriel (homeschooled), as well as a perky-positive daughter-in-law, Victoria (Bryson’s wife,) and a too-cute grandson, Judah.

The resources found on this site reflect the values I have discovered along the way. It is my greatest prayer that they will serve you well.
