Providing transformational resources for the church to change the world
More than one person has called me “crazy.” It’s understandable.
When I was seventeen, I rode my bicycle 1,000 miles to visit Canada. At eighteen, I moved 400 miles away from home to attend a college that had no campus. When I was nineteen, I spent the summer as a street evangelist in England. At twenty, I wanted to see America so I travelled across the US speaking in a different church every night for ten weeks. At twenty-two, I got married to a wonderful woman on a beautiful Saturday. The next weekend, we took thirty-five college kids to spend the summer in NYC living in a warehouse and doing evangelism.
You get the idea.
Since then, I have developed as an author of some surprisingly popular Christian living and ministry books (nearly 700,000 sold). I have served as the chairman of the largest department in what was at the time the largest seminary in the world. I have travelled and spoken to several thousand pastors, and presented seminars in several hundred churches. We started several new churches, including one in urban Las Vegas. We also launched a non-profit to feed and clothe the homeless.
Jesus died to give us a life of adventure. Passionately pursuing Jesus may be exhilarating or it might be crushing. But it is never dull.
Join the adventure.
