I’m the founding pastor
of Life Church Michigan,
a fast-growing new church for people who don’t always like going to church.
My new book, Holy Shift, released in October of 2016.
This is my personal blog. It is focused on life, leadership, and laughs. My philosophy is simple: “Don’t Just Dip Your Toe Into The Water… CANNONBALL!”
I write on using principles of comedy in leadership, entrepreneurial start-ups, adoption, God, and sometimes stuff that doesn’t fit neatly into one of those categories. I also occasionally write about the resources I am discovering. My goal is to create insightful, engaging content that will serve as a creative catalyst in your life.
