Tell us a little about yourself. I am a Professional Counselor working in private practice with 11 years total experience in church ministry and counseling. I love my wife and three little girls who keep me very busy! I also love the Church and specifically my home church, CCOJ.
What was your motivation behind this project? I found a great need in many churches for establishing a loving, all-inclusive community that was warm and nurturing. The Church is the hope of the world because Jesus is the hope of the world. Because of His great confidence in us, it behooves us to create a community of persons that reflect genuinely who He is and His mission.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Readers of my book will be challenged both personally and collectively to not only join the community of the Church, but promote the health and well-being of their local church.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I discovered that I am a part of a local church, linked to the entire Church, that is healthy and has shown me what it means to be a true community. It made me hungry for more churches to embrace the same influence and attitude toward the lost and each other.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? C.S. Lewis is my favorite author. Others who have inspired me to write include my mother, my pastor and other authors such as Richard Foster, George Barna, Stephen Arterburn, among others.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I pray that the reading of this book will serve to challenge, inspire and bless in a way that will spur the growth of genuine community in churches all across the nation.
