About My Family

My wife, Kaitlin, and I have been married for almost six years. We have had an exciting few years as we moved to Colorado to pursue education and then recently moved to Cleveland for ministry. We both have great families who support us and pray for us.
I recently graduated from Fuller Theological Seminary with my M.Div. Kaitlin has been a professional dancer and performed regularly in Denver. She now teaches dance at the Beck Center in Lakewood, Ohio. We both have enjoyed moving to new cities and exploring. Cleveland has been amazing! We are really excited about our new season in Cleveland. We immediately met several new friends and have been connecting well in our neighborhood.

About My Church Plant

We believe that there can be gospel movement within a city. This happens through leadership. We believe we can have a leader in every neighborhood in Cleveland that is engaging, developing, gathering and empowering the people with whom they connect. As we continue to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in our city, we are watching Him show us how to do this. He has been connecting us with kingdom-minded leaders who are interested in gospel movement. We desire to see these leaders empowered to go to their own sphere of influence and show Jesus love there. Relationship is the center of everything we do. This allows us to make disciples in a way that is necessary for a movement to take place.

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


Please pray for our protection as we continue to do work in Cleveland. Please pray for the leaders with whom we are connecting. Pray they would be the right people and would be interested in working together for the sake of the kingdom of God. Please pray that many people will come to know who God is and His love for them.


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. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
