Email Orion

Orion leads our preaching team as well as carries the vision and direction of our church with our Elders and other leaders.

After some troubled adolescent years, Orion was saved in the Fall of 1994 in a magnificant way. He immediately began to serve the Lord as an evangelist, and in any other way he could in ministry.

Orion studied the bible and theology in ministry school and continued seminary studies with Covenant Thelogical Seminary Distance Learning. He is passionate about scripture, theology and is a dedicated theologian, with nearly 25 years of biblical studies rooted in pastoral, and missional practice.

After serving on church planting teams and as a Youth Pastor for many years, he left vocational ministry to peruse opportunities in business development and organizational management. It wasn’t long before God called him back to plant churches again. After planting the Avenue Orion joined the Acts 29 Church Planting Network where he has served in various leadership roles and is now the Support Director for the Heartland Region of Acts 29. He supports Pastors and planters in their work, helps them to remain healthy in their ministry, marriage, and helps resolve any conflicts or issues that may arise in ministry.

After planting the Avenue Orion joined the Acts 29 Church Planting Network where he has served in various leadership roles and is now the Support Director for the Heartland Region of Acts 29. He supports Pastors and planters in their work, helps them to remain healthy in their ministry, marriage, and helps resolve any conflicts or issues that may arise in ministry. He also coaches, assesses, and trains new church planters regularly.

Even though he does these things his passion is preaching the gospel, making disciples, serving and loving his family, and church The Avenue. There is no way Orion could do all that he does without the support and gifts of his amazing wife Amy, and their two kiddos Riley and Luke.
