What a unique puzzle writing a bio for a church leader is. You have to write about yourself in a way that helps people get to know you while at the same time pointing it all to Jesus so he gets every ounce of glory.
Well, God did an excellent job when he created me. And I did a spectacular job mucking it all up. Since then we’ve been on a lifelong adventure together as he makes beautiful the image of him that I’ve marred.
I often introduce myself as an imperfect follower of Jesus and that pretty much sums it up. I serve as the Staff Care Pastor, which basically means I get to walk with some of the most amazing people you’ll ever meet as the Spirit of God helps them sort through all the ins and outs of life.
In 2006 I was introduced to the most intriguing, spectacular woman I’ve ever met and I discover more fascinating things about her the longer we’re together. However, I’ve yet to unearth the unspeakable thing she did that prompted God to slap her with a life sentence of marriage to me. But, perhaps ignorance is bliss.
We have a 10-pound Yorkie-poo that isn’t the brightest bulb in the room, but she sure is happy to be here. And, I’m trying hard to emulate that disposition of gratitude. Being here as a part of Mosaic church in Orlando, FL makes that gratitude part a bit easier.
