I am the senior pastor of Grace Brethren Church in Chico, CA. For twelve years (1999-2011) I pastored the Evangelical Free Church in Orland, CA. In ministry, I’m passionate about revitalizing the art of biblical preaching, connecting people across generational lines, and speaking clearly about Jesus Christ in this era of instability.
I’m also a violinist. I play with the North State Symphony, a regional orchestra, and in chamber music festivals. My wife Bridget and I have two small but dangerous boys, and we all live in a small but cleanable apartment.
My first novel, Fallen, was published by Kregel in 2008. My first non-fiction book, which Kregel released in 2009, is called The Diversity Culture: Creating Conversations of Faith with Buddhist Baristas, Bohemian Artists, Agnostic Students, Aging Hipsters, Political Activists, and Everyone In Between.
I am available for speaking engagements and interviews. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
