Hey, welcome! I’m glad you’re here! I’m a firm believer that people are our most valuable asset on earth. Therefore, I believe in connecting with new people and deepening relationships.
I want to hear about YOU and what you do (at the form below…) but first, can I introduce myself?
Jim Collins said in his famous book, Good to Great, “If you have more than three priorities, you have no priorities.” So here are my three…
I long to be a godly man and love my family and friends well – to echo to others the grace I’ve received from Jesus. I’m a Christian who believes the Bible is God’s ultimate revelation of himself to us and I want to spend my life learning how to fulfill God’s eternal purposes.
I help people discover their purpose and live it out passionately. I do this as Lead Pastor at Grace Hills Church and as a blogger and writer. My hope is to share the truth and grace of Jesus with my life and my lips.
I help leaders expand their influence. I’ve spent over a decade in the world of digital marketing. I wrote a book about social media and have helped shape a global online community of church leaders. I coach leaders about extending their reach as well as earning income from online business.
I wear several hats. My current roles include:
- Lead Pastor & Church Planter
Grace Hills Church
July 2011 – Present
- Editor & Online Community Facilitator
Pastors.com / Saddleback Church
July 2010 – Present

As Time Allows
Along with my wife, Angie, we are planting Grace Hills Church in Bentonville, Arkansas, which has grown from a couple of families in July of 2011 to an average attendance of over 400 while sending people to plant locally and abroad. We were sent out by Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, where I served as a Pastor while re-developing the online, global community of Pastors.com.
I’m originally from Bowling Green, Kentucky where Angie and I met at Warren Central High School in 1995. Together, we attended Central Baptist College and were married in 1997. We re-located back to Bowling Green where I served as a Pastor for eight years and we both attended Western Kentucky University.
Angie completed her Bachelor and Master of Social Work degrees and later became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She now serves part-time on the staff of Grace Hills leading women, making disciples, and leading our counseling and recovery ministries. She also owns Magpie Counseling in Bentonville, Arkansas. We have three precious kids – Ella, Sam, and Drew – and love life in Northwest Arkansas.
I’ve written a book entitled Rewired, published by Passio (Charisma House), and it’s all about how to use social media to spread the good news of Jesus further – a passion of mine. I’ve been blogging since 2004 and formerly served as Editor of Fuel Your Blogging. My writing has been featured in various publications including Leadership Journal, Ministry Today, Outreach, and The Church Executive. And I’m currently working on my next book as well.
