About My Family

My wife, Julie, and I live in Oxford, Ohio. We have nine kids. We have been married since July 2012 and have a heart for changing lives and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I have a bachelor's degree in pastoral leadership from Newburgh Theological Seminary and am currently working on my master's degree in biblical counseling from Andersonville Seminary. I enjoy fishing and hunting and am an avid Ohio State Buckeyes fan.

Julie is a nurse practitioner at Primary Health Solutions. She received her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Cincinnati in 2000.

We have been endorsed by the North American Mission Board to plant churches and are excited about this path on which God is taking us.

About My Church Plant

Our ministry started in October 2017. We have seen 25 people come to Christ and have baptized 23 since we launched. We have a firm belief in coming to church just the way you are.

We run multiple ministries from our location and do multiple outreaches in the community each year. Our outreaches to the community include Operation Christmas, a summer benefit to help local cancer patients and sports camp for the local children. These are some of the ways we spread the gospel in our community.

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 the planter’s family as they work together in ministry. Pray the church will be established and will faithfully work to plant in other communities, too. Pray the Lord brings leaders who can help within the church. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy.


Build relationships with a church planter, team members and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Learn birthdays and anniversaries, so you can send gifts and cards.
Learn the church plant, its strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a church planter financially.
