Nice to meet you


I am the founding pastor of Life Church, recognized in 2019 as the fastest-growing church in Michigan and 11th fastest-growing church in America.   My first book is an Amazon Bestseller and I'm currently pursuing my doctorate in Evangelism and Church Planting.

I am focused on strategic leadership and engaging teaching, all fueled by a gnawing passion for reaching people far from God.  

My unique ministry approach has been featured online in Time Magazine, USA Today, The Detroit News, MLive and The Washington Times.  

Married twenty-three years to my high school sweetheart, I have five children plus a wiener dog with a nervous bladder.
