Thanks for visiting. Hopefully you’ll be encouraged… I simply try to write about things that strike my heart and mind… in the hopes that others will be inspired to grow deeper.
Jesus got a hold of me early in life, squeezed hard when I was 16, and has been pressing me ever since. Now, as a squashed-soul, I am a dad of three, a husband of one, and a professor of youth ministry at Crown College, Minnesota. I’ve had the privilege to pastor next-generation ministry for 25 years in the United States and Canada (with organizations like YFC and InterVarsity and with some great churches). I enjoy writing, brainstorming, and facilitating tools that focus on Jesus-Centered and Next-Generation-Ministry resources.
Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. [Ephesians 3:17 NLT]
