Pastorpreneur and Creative Risk Taker for the Kingdom of God


I’ve spoken in front of groups as large as 7500 people and regularly speak in church, business, and community settings.  Presentations related to leadership, business strategy and ministry development are at the core of who I am and am blessed to be able to speak into these topics as a organization president, entrepreneur, pastor and dad.


I have worked with senior and executive leadership teams in large, mid-size, and small organizations. I am strategic, analytical thinking with a bias towards good execution and measurable results. I engage quickly and help self starting leaders move towards their life purposes and organizations become great at what they do.


I have written and authored eight books on leadership, cultural change, and spiritual formation. I believe everyone can be a leader and enjoy writing on how each of us can use our influence to change culture, develop trust and uncover the full potential of our individual leadership styles.

When people ask me what I'm passionate about it really comes down to developing lives that are pleasing to God. Sure, I'm passionate about culture and how we can build thriving ecosystems that explore focus, creativity and simplicity in their development. But, at the heart of it all, it's about helping people find out who God says they are.
