I grew up attending Eastside in the 90’s and it ended up becoming a place where I found friends, my wife Melissa, Jesus, and a place to belong.

After graduating from Milford in 2000, I studied at Cincinnati Christian University. After serving at a church in Virginia for 6 years and traveling for a non-profit for 9 years, I found my way back home at Eastside in 2019.

As Executive Pastor, you’ll find me doing quite a bit behind the scenes…leading the staff day to day, keeping an eye on the financials and managing things inside and outside the four walls.

When I’m not at Eastside, you can find me spending time with my wife of 15+ years and our 2 kiddos, Charlotte and Oliver. We like to hike and do pretty much anything outdoors. I like coffee, anything Apple, and discovering new bands and music.

I’d love to see you next Sunday at Eastside!
