About My Family

I am happily married to Susanne and live in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area. My wife and I are blessed with one midlife surprise—Christian Zacharias, born in 2010. I am a retired Air Force chaplain (2017) and presently serve as a corporate chaplain.

About My Ministry

I am a corporate chaplain serving three companies in Cincinnati, totaling approximately 800 employees. My primary mission is to build caring relationships with the hope of gaining permission to share the life-changing good news of Jesus Christ in a non-threatening manner. If you think about it, people spend more time at work than anywhere else. But just because they go to work doesn't mean they've left their worries at home.

As a corporate chaplain, I have the unique opportunity to bring care and compassion to the workplace where it is needed most and where it can make a meaningful difference. You can partner with me by praying for my family and me and the companies I serve. Pray that God would open doors of opportunity to build caring relationships with employees and their families and to share the gospel.

SBC Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy is a vital frontline ministry and extension of the local church. Chaplains reach the lost among the thousands of men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces, correctional facilities, healthcare settings, public safety, disaster relief sites and corporate environments. SBC Chaplains care for the broken, offer hope to the hopeless and advance the gospel of Jesus Christ in hard to reach places.
The qualifications expected of a Southern Baptist applying for endorsement as a chaplain or counselor are established by the using agency and the Chaplains Commission, SBC. These qualification requirements vary according to the type of chaplaincy or counseling ministry involved but all are expected to meet a high level of ministerial competence.


Pray for boldness to share the gospel and open hearts among the people to whom I minister. Pray for people to come to saving faith in Jesus. Pray for more to become missionaries and chaplains.


Commit to long-term prayer support. Explore the opportunities to extend the reach of your church by becoming a chaplain. Be involved in supporting chaplains and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Talk with a chaplain about his or her ministry context. Send resources that support a chaplain's ministry context. Pray for chaplains and their families.
NAMB does not provide compensation for SBC endorsed chaplains. However, a general fund is available to receive donations in support of the ministry and pastoral care to SBC endorsed chaplains. To donate, please visit Support Chaplaincy (
