I’m a husband, father, pastor, and most of all, an apprentice and servant of Jesus Christ. My chief desire is to be faithful to Christ in all areas of life as I follow Him, and to encourage others to live fruitfully as they follow Him.
I’m originally from the Chicago area and graduated from the University of Illinois and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
For the past twenty years I lived and pastored in Michigan. While there I planted several new churches.
I recently moved to Lakeland, Florida to serve as the founding pastor of Christ Church of Lakeland (christchurchlakeland.com) which is affiliated with the Confederation of Reformed Evangelical Churches (crechurches.org).
I began this blog in order to post various thoughts and to provide some biblical commentary on issues and events of the day. I also expect on occasion to post material of a more personal nature as it might seem to be of interest to others. Finally, I intend to use this blog to archive my weekly newspaper column, Seed for the Harvest.
Everything I post here is done so in the spirit of an anamchara, which is what the Irish would call a “soul friend.” I plan to keep most posts short, both as a discipline for myself and a courtesy to my readers.
I launched this blog with the help of my computer savvy son, Jordan, while vacationing on August 20, 2007.
