He's been a resident of Stoughton since 2002 and serves as a volunteer in that community in several ways. In 2005, after starting a Bible study at the request of his unchurched neighbors, Sean and his wife planted Grace Church at the Holiday Inn in Brockton. While it took them four years to reach one hundred people, they've been growing aggressively since, having planted four additional churches in the area. They started a church planting residency in 2017 and, by God's grace, hope to plant one church a year moving forward.
