About Me

My Story

I created this website because I wanted a place to share my journey with others. I wanted a place where my son and daughter could see what I was up to in the world, and I wanted a place that allowed me to simply, be me. I don’t have enough white space on this page to write my entire story, but I wanted to share a few things about me so you can get a feel of who I am.

 

I am a guy who passionately loves his children and wife. I am so thankful that I get to share my life with them. Much of my passion and enthusiasm is inspired by those little faces. You will observe that I often incorporate stories about them throughout some of my content.

 

My vocational pathway started back in college when I began working in property management. I was in that field for 14 years and was afforded the opportunity to lead teams, increase bottom lines, and train and develop other leaders.

 

In 2010, I felt the desire to pursue a life-time passion of working in a church and becoming a pastor. It is hard to put into words, but through most of my life I had felt this nudging to go into full-time ministry. Yes, it sounds like a huge transition, but everything aligned and I ended up coming on-staff at Saddleback Church. Life in ministry is not perfect, but I have had some great roles that have allowed me to use my God-given talents in many ways.

 

I am currently the Pastor of Network Development where I lead the Small Group Network. In this role, I get to grow an international network of small group point people. My team consists of 3 departments: Connections, Communications and Events. In the last 2 years, we have grown our website membership base from 1910 subscribers to over 10,000, we have increased our total number of Huddles from 75 to 182, and we have increased the number of events from 2 to 10 events per year. I feel strongly that a good portion of our growth relates to our comprehensive communications strategy that we have in place.

My content is mainly focused around leadership and personal development. I do my best to share intimate areas of my life with the hopes of helping others.

 

Although this blurb by no means provides you my full story, it is my hope that you get the gist of who I am and what I am passionate about.
