I am pastor of Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, a modern congregation in Charlotte, North Carolina. I help lead a talented group of pastors and support staff. In another life, I played a lot of tennis. I married well and have two adult children.
Through Abingdon Press, I have published five books to serve as resources for both life groups and preachers in training. My Bible study book, Solve, reached the Washington Post’s best seller list thanks to churches who selected it for their church-wide Bible study.
My sixth book, Simplify The Message, Multiply the Impact, shares my experiences and habits that have helped me grow as a preacher and a follower of Christ. Learn how sermons and messaging can be rooted in history and connected to modernity, and how you can deliver Christ-centered messages to break through the noise of culture.
