Hi. Thanks for visiting my “About” page.

In March 2012, I began serving as the Senior Pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville, Tennessee. I am married to Patti and have two daughters, Abby and Ellie, and a son in law (Abby’s husband) Jeff Timmers. Before Nashville, I was a lead and preaching pastor for Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. Patti and I have also planted and pastored churches in Kansas City and St. Louis. In addition to pastoring a church I love, I also write books and speak occasionally at conferences, leadership retreats, and to university students.

I am honored to serve the people of Nashville’s Christ Presbyterian Church.
