Justin grew up in just outside of Houston TX. In 1999, he attended Baylor University in Waco TX and while in Waco got involved in Antioch Community Church as a freshman in college. During his college years Justin was exposed to life on life discipleship and missions through his local church involvement at Antioch. God began the process of intertwining missional living and discipleship during this college experience that He continued to build upon as Justin stepped into the next season of life. After college Justin went into the business world and continued to learn and develop in walking with God and making disciples in a non-ministry environment. In 2006 Justin and his wife Rachelle moved to Portand OR to join a church-planting team with Antioch. During their 8 years in Oregon Justin and Rachelle had a deeply transforming experience where they learned how to live from the grace of God and their identity in Christ, while continuing to make disciples and live on mission in the city. Over the last few years Justin has focused on making disciples through a simple and reproducible discovery oriented DNA and training others to do the same. Justin is now the Director of the Antioch Discipleship School located in Waco TX where he trains men and women to discover God and make disciples through simple and reproducible tools and strategies. Justin and Rachelle have been married for 13 years and have 3 children: Emma (9), Lucy (7), and Jack (3).
