He has his M.A. Interdisciplinary degree from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, where he received the Owen John Lydecker Memorial Reward, given to a graduate who demonstrates academic proficiency and shows excellent potential for local church ministry. He will soon be enrolled at Western Theological Seminary to further study biblical Greek and Hebrew. He served as a youth pastor for a year and a half before planting Crossroads Church in Lansing, MI in 2006. Crossroads is located in downtown Lansing and has a vibrant urban ministry. Crossroads’ vision is to be a multi-racial church reaching the whole city with the whole gospel.
Noah is the founder and co-chair of a new grassroots urban multi-racial church planting network that is in its very early stages.
Noah has been married to his wife Jennifer for 11 years and has two adorable daughters, ages 4 and 2. Noah used to enjoy playing football until he tore his ACL 3 times. Now he settles for 10K’s and roller hockey, but mainly just chasing his kids around. He also enjoys playing board games, reading The Lord of the Rings trilogy and yes, he actually enjoys all of the writing he does!
Noah is a frequent guest speaker at Great Lakes Christian College chapels, Michigan State University’s Cru and InterVarsity chapters, as well as other local churches. Booking page.
