I am the Lead Pastor of ConnectPoint in Spokane, WA, living to serve Jesus Messiah. I am married to an incredibly beautiful woman, Melinda, and we have 2 girls, Sierra and Taylor, (thankfully our daughters looks more like their mom everyday, I married way out of my league).

I have been in full-time ministry since 1999, and pastoring since 10.26.06. I am an avid reader, UFC fan, exercise every so often, and love my girls.

This blog

My goal is to journal my journey as a leader and follower of Jesus, to hopefully help you in your personal journey. I write about leadership, discipleship, how to make Jesus famous, and various things I am passionate about.

You will read things I come across in sermon prep, thoughts I am wrestling with, things related to my family or ConnectPoint, and some random things that just happen in life.

How often do I blog?

I typically blog 4 – 5 times a week. To make sure you don’t miss the most recent posts, be sure to subscribe by email (look right), or add this url to your favorite reader or rss feed.
