Tell us about your family and work:  My beloved wife, Aemita and I met in college, She was pursuing a nursing career at Bowling Green State while I was at the University Cincinnati and we were both in student Christian ministries and had opportunity to fellowship together. We have been married now for 30 years. We have 3 young adult children. Philip, our eldest, is currently a graduate MBA student at Xavier University and recently became engaged. Our daughter, Loren, after graduating from UC and teaching abroad followed a call and is a Lieutenant in the US Marine Corp. Mathew, our youngest is in his last year as an Aerospace/Aeronautical Engineering student obtaining a BS at the University of Cincinnati this coming May.  All our children have accepted Christ as their Savior and have been baptized and are now walking out their faith.

I’m a registered architect and the Director of Operations at Moody Nolan Architects for the Cincinnati regional office.  We lead many colleague and commercial projects throughout the Tristate.

When did you become an Elder?  I was elected as an elder on August 11, 2019, and excited to serve our church.

Tell us about your passion for ministry:  I’m totally bought in to our risen Savior and committed to His living Word and reaching the lost for Christ. I desire to see lives transformed and minds renewed as His ambassador on earth. Therefore our “This is the Life” vision comes easy as does the Great Commission. God’s Word is real, reveals and inspires spiritual growth, and truly transforms my perspective every week. I strive every day to grow closer in my relationship to God through His Son, It is my heart’s desire to grow stronger and share more with others how God has kept me. Although my walk has not been perfect, it’s my desire to be more like David, a man after God’s own heart — hating what He hates and loving what He loves.  God’s radical love for this world is inspiring and Jesus’ sacrificial death to redeem our lives is nothing short of miraculous and compels me to share with everyone I can.
