Through God’s grace, I have had the opportunity to serve the Lord and His church in a number of ways: as a senior pastor, associate pastor, Sunday School director, Sunday School teacher, and now as a denominational servant. I have served in ministry in both bivocational and full-time roles. I also worked in the business world for more than ten years as a statistician. (Go ahead and say it…you hated that class, right?)
I certainly don’t pretend to know everything about local church ministry, but two things I do know are: (1) I love the church, and I am passionate about helping the church to engage in the Great Commission, and (2) Pastors often are so busy that they don’t have the time nor the energy to find the resources they need to help them lead their churches to engage in the Great Commission.
That’s why I have started this blog. I want to help busy pastors and church leaders to more effectively engage their churches in the work of the Great Commission, and I want to help you to do so as quickly as possible. For that reason, my blog posts will usually be short (less than 500 words). I will try to be direct and to the point. I will (sometimes) link to helpful articles and posts from other ministry leaders who are much smarter than me. I will (sometimes also) share results of a study that I have conducted. My goal with every post will be to help encourage, equip, and engage the church in the pursuit of the Great Commission.

I have been happily married to my wife, Brandi, for fourteen years. We have two sons: Isaiah, 8; and Noah, 6. Thanks for reading, and I pray that this blog is a blessing to you!
