From a small town in Southeastern Illinois, Noah began his ministry journey during his college years at Mckendree University and then came back home where he served as a youth pastor. In 2006, God began to call Noah and Heather into church planting, leading Noah to earn his MAR and M.Div at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. By 2009, August Gate launched in the school building of Trinity Lutheran Church in Soulard as a plant from Matthias' Lot Church. In addition to leading August Gate, Noah also serves as the Senior Director of Church Planting Deployment for the North American Mission Board. Some of his hobbies include fitness and nutrition, reading, and beard growing. Noah and his wife Heather are blessed with five children: Allie, Chaim, Piper, Haddon, and Dox.
