MEET THE TEAM
I was born in Kokomo, IN, but raised in the village of Wellington, OH. My best friend growing up invited me to a youth gathering in high school, and I went because they had fun things to do and we almost always ate Buffalo Wild Wings (I'm a mango habanero kind of guy). I saw an authentic and genuine love for Jesus that I couldn't ignore. I knew the trajectory of my life shifted when I committed my life to Jesus and was baptized.
After high school I attended Ohio Valley University where I found new brothers, a refined faith, an accounting degree, and a wife. I married Ashley the summer in between my junior and senior year. And we got a dog - and naturally, named him Shredder.
I started my career at a CPA firm in Parkersburg, WV, and dedicated myself to becoming a partner in that firm. A few years and a few promotions later, I found myself in a position where this dream was becoming a reality. And then our daughter (Raegan) was born. The newness of life and reality that our priorities needed to shift led Ashley and I down a path of surrender and prayer - and for the first time really asking God to lead our journey. Around that same I got an email from Cody & Micah Balch asking if we would join them on this church planting journey.
Fast-forward a few years, jobs, houses, and children (Claire, Elias & Isaiah) later, God has me in the midst of this incredibly encouraging community of people. There's way more to that story, so I'll catch you up over coffee.
Seeing my beautiful wife and smiling kids is one of my greatest joys. I also dabble on the guitar and spend as much time as I can outside - which usually involves the art of landscaping, photography, and grilling.
My God-sized dream is to see everyone boldly and intentionally using their unique gifts to serve and impact people for the Kingdom of God.
