About Me: I have a great passion for all things of the 80’s and 90’s. I will probably spend the rest of my life believing the best music and movies happened between those decades. Shorts are meant to be worn at or below, not above the knee. I was born and raised in West Virginia. While I was studying Business Administration at Marshall, God made Himself known to me. I confessed my sin and began following Jesus during the summer of 1998. While at Marshall University I met my future wife, Olivia. We married in the summer 2005 and the Lord gave us our first child two years later. Since our marriage in 2005, we have had a child every odd year until 2019.


Home is my favorite place in the world. I love being with my family, playing with the kids, and doing home renovations. I enjoy coaching Little League baseball and volunteering in the community. I love having people over to the house, discipling young men, and hopefully helping our church to trust Jesus. That pretty much sums up my days.

About Me: I was born and raised in Huntington, West Virginia.  I graduated from Grace Christian School in 1999.  It was from the ministry of Grace Gospel Church and Grace Christian School that I came to know about Jesus.  I placed my faith in Him to be my Savior.  In high school, college, and post graduate studies, I struggled with assurance of salvation, but ultimately found enormous peace in the realization that Jesus Christ has completed ALL things necessary for my salvation and that my sinfulness, though great, cannot disqualify me from His grace and forgiveness.  As the only Christian in my family, I feel a great burden to share this message of salvation with my loved ones and the unreached world.  In 2011, I met another Christian with those same passions--Kait Bartoe.  Kait was on her way to Uganda to serve as a missionary.  Within 9 months of our meeting, we were engaged and after a one year engagement during which we were separated by an ocean, we married in 2013 and spent much of the first year of our marriage in Uganda together.  We returned to the US in 2014 and have been attending Huntington Community Church since 2015.  We have four children, one labrador retriever, and four hermit crabs.

About me: I grew up in Milton, WV in an incredible Christian home, but it wasn't until my freshman year of college that I believe the gospel started to truly impact my life. Once Jesus changed me in 2011, He gave me a passion for His Word and His Church. Throughout my college years, I was heavily involved in my local church where I was discipled by a man named Joey Stevens. Joey leveraged all of his time to teach me how to follow Jesus, study the Bible, and serve people. After graduating from Marshall University, I had the opportunity to work at my local church doing youth ministry for 3 years. In 2016, I married Courtney Kramer. A year later, we knew the Lord was calling us to Huntington, WV to join staff at HCC. We can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for this incredible church family.
