Living to cultivate an ongoing relationship of intimacy with Jesus Christ, both personally & communally.
Seeking to inspire all people to know, love, & live in beautiful surrender to Jesus Christ.
Sharing the gospel through story-rich teaching, spiritual formation experiences, & the written word.
I have had the privilege to serve Christ in full-time & bi-vocational ministry for over 20 years. I currently work for FOCUS Ministries, a thriving prison & re-entry nonprofit serving the incarcerated population in Knoxville & East Tennessee. I have also authored the book I Have Ears: Learning to Hear from God.
My heart is for inspiring the Church toward greater Christ-likeness through strategic disciple-making. I love to use story, teaching, and community-building to introduce others to Christ and His eternal Kingdom.
I have been blessed with the greatest wife, Michelle, who happens also to be the greatest mother to my two wonderful children, Kaitlyn McKenzie and Elijah Brant. We have adopted two lovely mutts, Champ and Lucy.
