While a native Californian who lived in Chicago for 18 years (Go CUBS), I now live in Grand Rapids, MI. I’m wonderfully married to Cyd (since 2000) and have two teenage boys.
Besides being a pastor, professor, and theologian, most of all, I’m just trying to work out my faith for the real world.
I serve as a co-pastor of youth and family ministries at Vineyard North.
My wife and I just launched our God With Us Podcast.
And we just turned in the manuscript for Does God Really Like Me? Discovering the God Wants to be With Us. Check out part of it here.
I also co-authored, Prodigal Christianity, with David Fitch, and wrote Transcending Subjects: Augustine, Hegel, and Theology (a version of my doctoral dissertation).
I work as an affiliate professor of theology at Northern Seminary.
Please follow me on Twitter or Facebook.
My writing focuses on the church, theology and philosophy, politics and culture. My goal is that everything here would make theology and mission accessible for everyone. I’m all over the place but hopefully you’ll find some of it interesting and helpful.
Subscribe to my weekly “soundings” newsletter and I’ll send you Does God Even Like Me? The good news of not being alone.
