About My Family

My wife, Elizabeth and I have been married for six years and have two daughters: Sophia Grace (5) and Colbie Rae (born June 2017). We are both from the Columbus area and after a short season of ministry in Cincinnati, God has called us back home to Columbus to start a church.

About My Church Plant

Since 2009, we knew God was calling us to start a church somewhere. After serving under some of the most incredible pastors in the state of Ohio, we believe God called us to the north side of Columbus to start a church in the Powell/Dublin community. Our main goal as a church is to help people find and follow Jesus. We desire to see people transformed by the gospel in their lives daily and for them to join a community that can only be found in the local church.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at namb.net/send-me.


Pray that our pastors and team would continue to be faithful to the calling God has given us. Pray for continued opportunity as week seek to partner with the city of Powell and surrounding communities. Pray for the families of our pastors and team as we move forward on this new adventure - that we would stay close to our families and closer to Jesus. Pray for those that are not yet part of our team that we would cross paths and they would join what God is doing. Pray for people in the Powell/Dublin communities as we share our lives and the Gospel with them.


We would love to connect with you as we seek to start this church. If you are interested in joining our prayer team, sending a missions team or partnering with us, contact me at aaron@livinghopepowell.com.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit sendnetwork.com/PlanterFunding for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
