About My Family

Brittany and I moved to Hamilton, Ohio, from northeast Oklahoma in January 2020. God has blessed us with four beautiful children—Peyton, Channing, Teagan and Sterling. Our family enjoys spending time together playing games and having weekly movie nights.

Before moving to Ohio, I served in ministry for seven years at Crescent Valley Baptist Church in Tahlequah, Okla., serving the last four years as the executive pastor. While preparing to launch Inspiring Hope Church in Hamilton, I was a church planting resident, serving on staff with Grace Point Fellowship for a year.

Brittany is a stay-at-home mother and teaches English as a Second Language (ESL) online part time. She homeschools our four children and serves alongside me in preparing to plant Inspiring Hope Church.

About My Church Plant

Inspiring Hope Church exists to inspire hope by helping people discover God's purpose for their lives through a relationship with Jesus. We believe we can accomplish this by teaching our people to follow Jesus, live in community, serve those around them and expand God's kingdom by multiplying disciples, groups and churches around the world.

We are passionate about serving our community through partnering with other ministries and organizations to advance the gospel. We desire to meet people where they are in order to build relationships that we pray and believe will turn into gospel conversations.

We have a God-sized vision to plant multiple churches in our city. We put a major focus on developing our families to own the mission of Inspiring Hope and teaching them in a simple way to be the church on mission every day.

Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.
