I am “a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes (James 4:14),” yet God was gracious enough to save me at a young age, give me a wonderful wife in 1999, and four children. We live in Cincinnati, OH.

God also called me to be the founding and lead pastor of Christ the King Church in the inner city of Cincinnati. Our mission is to help people know, love, and obey Jesus as Lord over all of life. Planting and pastoring CTK is my joy and passion. By God’s grace, I hope to see many more biblically faithful and gospel-centered churches planted from CTK throughout Cincinnati. Our daughter church, Christ the King Eastern Hills, was launched in 2014.

I am a student of scripture and theology, an observer of culture, and my desire is to help people apply the gospel to every part of their lives. Beyond these things, I enjoy playing piano and guitar, hiking outdoors, and enjoying the beauty of God’s creation whenever I can.
