Staff & Elders
Elder, Senior Pastor
It has been my privilege to serve as the senior pastor at Columbus Berean Church since 2017. I became a believer in Jesus Christ early in life and became passionate about discipleship in the local church during college. I have a Master of Divinity from Southern Seminary, where God graciously trained me for the work of the ministry. I am married to Megan and we have three children, Nora, Lucy and Rhys.
Elder, Associate Pastor
I came on staff as a pastoral intern in 2021 and now serve as the associate pastor. I love Jesus and his bride (the church) and want to see the church grow in our understanding of what Christ has done for us. I am married to Kaela, whom I met as we both served as missionaries in Australia. I hold a Bachelors of Science in Biblical Studies from Emmaus Bible College.
I became an elder at Columbus Berean in 2010. I became a believer at a very young age and was blessed to grow up in a Christian home and Bible-based church. Through the years, God has continued to teach and use me for His purpose and glory. I’m thankful that His mercies are new every morning and He continues to use me at Columbus Berean Church. He has called me to help lead this church and I humbly love being a part of His local ministry.
I have been an elder at Columbus Berean since 2020. I became a believer in Jesus Christ through the ministry of FCA in high school in Holdrege, Nebraska. I have attended Berean churches for the last 30 years, both in Lincoln and in Columbus. I am humbled to serve as an elder for Columbus Berean, being able to use the gift of teaching God’s Word. I enjoy passing along the wisdom that others have invested in me through the years to both the youth and adults in our church.
what we do
We worship Christ together on Sunday through singing, praying, and hearing God’s Word.
We teach the Bible because it is the authoritative, life-giving Word of God.
We gather to encourage one another to apply to the gospel to all of life.
