I serve as the Director of Generosity by LifeWay and Co-Founder of The Big Giving Fund.
I have spent over 30 years playing some role in serving churches. It has been an amazing ride. I have enjoyed seasons as both a church planter and rural church pastor. I've served as full-time staff in large churches along with being a bi-vocational minister. Each experience has been crazy unique. All with valuable assets for my journey. For the past couple decades I have been solely focused in helping pastors resource vision. Growing generous pastors who grow generous disciples is what I tend to write about. You can check it out here.
My life hit its sweet spot when I ventured into the marketplace as an entrepreneur almost 20 years ago. I absolutely love starting things as I have launched both for profit corporations and nonprofit orgs. All of these ventures had one thing in common. My passion for resourcing people. When I moved away from my full-time vocational role as a pastor, it was an exciting exploration of how to best impact my family and community without the influence of a pulpit. This has been its own fun journey in generosity. You can check in out here at The Big Giving Fund.
Speaking has always been something I really enjoy. Back in the day, people could have heard me delivering weekly sermons in the local church. It has been awhile since I have dusted off those skills. However, I do a ton of speaking mostly in the realm of thought leadership and training workshops.
As far as writing goes, I do a fair bit both formally and informally. I run a couple of blogs, do regular sermon series crafting for LifeWay, and have even written a book entitled, Leading A Generous Church. Truth be told it is more of a tool than a book. You can find it on Amazon. Feel free to reach out to me regarding any article writing, training, podcast guest, or speaking opportunity. I would love to support what you are doing if possible.
