About My Family

In 2008, God did something amazing and led me to join a church-planting team going to Ohio State University (OSU) to plant H2O Church. There I met my wife, Alyssa, and we were married in 2011. Alyssa went on to grad school to study clinical mental health counseling and has since started her own private practice.
We have two boys. Jake is 2 1/2, and Luke is almost a year old. They are full of life and energy and keep us on our toes! And they have brought much joy to our lives. Our passions are raising a family, Alyssa's counseling and planting H2O City!

About My Church Plant

A team from Michigan planted H2O at Ohio State University in 2008, hoping to reach OSU students with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Since then, God has expanded our vision to include graduates, professionals, children and families in Columbus as well. That's where the H2O City plant comes in. We have began the process of planting the H2O City congregation just off OSU's campus by forming life groups and cultivating community and mission, and we officially launched in November 2016!

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.


For churches as they prepare to send out missionaries and chaplains to push back lostness in North America. For receptive hearts among the people in communities where these missionaries and chaplains will serve. For churches and individuals to partner with missionaries and chaplains and to give of their time and talents. For the Father to send more workers into His harvest to join these missionaries.


Connect as a Sending Church or a Supporting Church with a missionary’s work. Commit to long-term missions support with your missionary partner. Be involved in supporting missionaries and their families. Pray for missionaries.
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.
