Welcome to my site dealing with issues related to church leadership and teaching. If you are a leader, regardless of whether you serve in the church world or in the marketplace, I hope you will find something of value here. Leadership is hard, especially in today's climate.

Coming October 19th, 2020, is a new teaching series, The Major Seven. This seven week study highlights the seven biblical chapters that are a must if you want to understand its over-arching story and teaching. In fact, these chapters serve as the foundation for most of the other books and doctrines of the Bible.
These chapters help us to navigate many of life's pressing questions: Why is life messy? If God exists, does he even care about us? How can God meet my deepest needs? What does the future hold?
The study begins Monday October 19th, 2020, and will be live from 7-8pm EST. If you are unable to join us during the live presentation you can catch each episode at your convenience.
The study will be featured on our YouTube channel and each week you can use the Academics tab above and go to the dedicated Major Seven page to grab the live teaching link and to grab the corresponding notes. Grab this link to go to the page now. I hope you plan to join us.
