What brought you to Louisville? Renal and I came to Louisville to start a disciple-making movement and come alongside the life-giving churches in the Metro area to tell the story of Jesus. Louisville also gets us closer to our adult children so that we can stay in the mix as parents.
What do you love most about Louisville? Gracie Kentucky, getting anywhere in the Metro area in 20 minutes and the people!
Favorite Movie/TV Show: Star Wars, The LOTR Trilogy, The Office, and The Man Who Knew Too Little.
Favorite Music/Band: I’m into Alternative bands, Classic Rock, Bob Marley & The Wailers, John Mark McMillan and all the 80’s music I grew up with!
Favorite Books: Desiring God by John Piper because it changed my view of God; Convergence by Sam Storms, because it taught me that Word and Spirit play well together; and A Theology of the New Testament by G.A. Ladd because it gave me a framework for the already and not yet’s of the Bible.
Hobbies/Interests: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, cooking, and coaching on mission and theology.
