What I believe

I believe art is a magnifying glass to the glory of God.

I believe in the power of words to heal, comfort, inspire, entertain, and even save.

I believe poetry is a portal to a deeper understanding of the human experience.

I believe Jesus is who he said he was, and who the prophets said he would be.

I believe in belief.


A Bit About Me

I’m a lover of words and a student of God’s grace. And some other things.

I am one of the elder/pastors of The Door Church in Coppell, Texas — a church I helped plant in 2011.

My first book, Walking Through Walls, is aimed at helping the reader connect the two worlds of work and Christian faith. My second book Show Yourself a Man, is a book which helps men work out what Biblical manhood looks like in the modern world.

In addition to my writing here, I write (or have written) for The Gospel Coalition, The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, Unlocking the Bible, Fathom Mag, 9Marks, and The Door Church.

I am the founder of Fruitful, an organizational catalyst practice which helps leaders of organizations clarify their vision, unify around a mission, and remove obstacles to success.

I'm a family man with a lovely wife and three arrows in my quiver (Psalm 127:4).
