Harlie is an Australian American (dual citizen), married to Liz. Their 3 children include Trafford, their eldest son, and their twin girls Emberly and Westin.


It was during his time studying Industrial Design, at Newcastle University in Australia, that Harlie sensed a call to invest his life in people. This led to what was meant to be a short term missions internship in Houston Texas. However, God used this as a stepping stone into vocational ministry in Texas from 2006-2019.


To put it succinctly, Harlie believes that he is called to love God and use his giftings to help others do the same. He loves preaching and teaching, smaller group discipleship, clarity in vision and doctrine and gospel application/declaration.
