The story of Canvas Church... so far.


I want to invite you into our story. I grew up in Ohio and my parents divorced when I was two. My great aunt and uncle raised me when my parents were not in the picture. I don’t know where I would be without them, they are my family. When I was in high school, I met Caleb and James. Caleb was in my grade and he was like a brother who I never had. James was a youth pastor. He and I would work on his old farm house and talk about life, girls and God. He became the dad who wasn’t there right at that moment in my life. James helped trained me to be a youth pastor and helped me to get my first two ministry jobs, one in Powell, Ohio and the other in Atlanta, Georgia.

The long and short of our story is that Kelly and I are moving from Atlanta, Georgia to come home to Westerville, Ohio. We will be starting a church because we believe that the church is more than a building. The church is a family, who can love you through good times and tough times. In a church family, you can experience life changing love from people and from God. The life of a person moved by God’s love becomes a canvas that reveals God’s love to a lost and broken world. I want to be a part of a community like that and if you do to, join us. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram and Like us on Facebook. Join our weekly email list to hear more about how you can be involved with what God is doing with Canvas Church. The church became my family, I pray that you allow Canvas to be yours.
