About My Family

My wife, Birtukan, and I married in 2003 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We are blessed with three lovely children, Lewawit , Sura and Ermias. We are a gospel-centered family of believers who are helping to plant a church in Aurora and everywhere for everyone.

About My Church Plant

I am called by God to plant the Presence of God Church in Aurora for the Ethiopian community and to plant churches everywhere for everyone. My vision is to share the gospel and make more disciples so through the Presence of God Church, we can plant more churches. We are part of SEND Network.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood.
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.


Pray for my family as we work together in ministry to disciple Ethiopian families, children and those who have no relationship with Jesus. Please pray we would have strength and power to share effectively to the Ethiopian community. Pray God helps us do work in Ethiopia and reach the people there with the gospel. Pray the church will develop and train worship team members, including those who play musical instruments, so they can disciple and multiply. Pray for ministries to multiply in church planting and multiplication with youth and adults. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy.


Build relationships with the Ethiopian community through summer soccer games for the purpose of share the gospel, discipling and multiplying with partners, planters, team members and their families.
