About My Family

I grew up in Topeka, and my wife, Amanda, grew up in Abilene. We met during college in Manhattan and married my senior year in 2006. God blessed us with Ryder in August 2009 and Josie in September 2011. While we were quite content (and overwhelmed!) with two small children, God led us to be a family for a child who did not have a family. We began the adoption process, and in February 2014 we brought Sylas home. He was 17 months old at the time.

About My Church Plant

After almost 10 years of student and family ministry in Manhattan and Topeka, God provided the opportunity to do a church planting residency at Mill Creek Community Church in order to plant a church in the Kansas City area. We sold our house and moved our family of five into a two-bedroom apartment in Bonner Springs. It didn't take us long to fall in love with the community and the people of our little corner of the metro. Most importantly, it didn't take long to realize that God was moving in Bonner, and we knew He had already been laying the groundwork for a church plant.

Proclaim is all about making Jesus known. We desire everything we do and say to communicate and reflect Christ and the gospel.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions in North America are in desperate need of hope. Ultimately, the only hope that’s going to last - in this life and the next - is the hope of the gospel. North American missionaries build relationships and share this hope in their communities and beyond.


Pray for boldness to share the gospel and open hearts among the people in Bonner Springs. Pray that God would raise up gospel planters from within Proclaim Church. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy.
