Ever since I was young, I had a burning thirst for truth, and I soaked it up wherever I could find it. As I grew older, I came to realize that Truth was a historical person named Jesus of Nazareth, who existed before his birth, and who is the living Blueprint who holds together all created reality. He is God's Reason and the integration of everything, and by his death on the cross he is the Savior of my life.
I live for moments of palpable perfection—those glimmers of the ideal future that Jesus Christ is preparing, thrown back into the present. I catch fleeting glimpses in music and art and in the natural world, but most of all when God's Spirit transforms selves and systems to be holy and whole as he is.

I'm a member of the dynamic, creative team at The Future Church Co., a family of organizations that helps leaders forge the future of disciplemaking. I'm also the founder of Fulcrum Content, where I train preachers, teachers, and church communication specialists to answer the questions people are really asking with the gospel.
I have served as a pastor in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I was raised in upstate New York and educated in Indiana and Massachusetts. I love history and earned a Doctor of Ministry degree with a thesis on nineteenth-century educator, revivalist, publisher, and abolitionist Mansfield French. I live in Pennsylvania with my wife and four children.
