projects, church planting director, missionary, and leadership trainer. He now serves in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Now on to the important stuff:
Apple, blueberry, mincemeat – it doesn’t matter – I love them all. Put on a strong
pot of coffee, serve it in prodigious portions, and I’m yours.
Sinner. Following Christ has not only set me free from eternal death, but He also set
me free from the destructive behaviors destroying me and making me a painful
problem to the people around me. I live under His waterfall of grace.
Service. In God’s Kingdom, I serve as a mentor and nudge. I help emerging leaders
pursue intimacy with God, character development, and multiplying faith communities
– all to lower the barriers for movements to Jesus.
