About Me & This Blog

This blog is about diving into deep theological reflection and conversation about the world, the Church, youth ministry, and life in the Great Emergence.

As for me, I have been doing youth ministry since 1989 and most of the time I’ve even got paid for it! During the college years I served in Washington, Oregon, and North Dakota.  Followed by an amazing  decade at a great church in Glendale, CA, and then nearly 6 years serving in Plano, TX. GOD has now called me as an

    Associate Pastor for youth ministry

at an amazing congregation in Albuquerque, NM.

My greatest passion is to be faithful to the call has given me the first of which is to be husband to my amazing wife Joy and father to our three beautiful children. I am honored that God has let me show up in the lives of youth for His sake.

I love to tell stories. Listen to stories. Watch stories. OR be in a story. I think reality tv and written work can co-exist. Coke and never Pepsi. I think the world is better with coffee of dark roasted finely brewed coffee. I think Evil is real and must be defeated, will be defeated, and already has been defeated. If I had a favorite Bible Verse it would be Zechariah 4:6
