Tell us a little about yourself. I am a pastor in Greensboro, NC and also work in in the Global Innovation and Training division of Young Life. I am married to Natalie and we have three children: Honey, Hutch, and Macy Heart.
What was your motivation behind this project? Teenagers are awesome, yet it's often challenging to build relationships with them. I wanted to write a book to help parents and those in youth ministry understand the challenges teenagers face and how we can share the gospel with them at this crucial age.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I pray that they will fall more in love with the God who walks alongside of them and that their hearts will break for teenagers to know Jesus.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I've been in youth ministry for two decades and this project re-kindled my passion to keep chasing after teenagers.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Many of them are quoted in this book: The Apostle Paul, Richard Foster, Jim Rayburn, Tim Keller, Paul Miller, Henri Nouwen, Gary Chapman, Sally Lloyd-Jones, Eugene Peterson, CS Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, and the many adults who chased after me during my teenage years. My wife, Natalie, is the most grace-filled parent I've ever seen, so, other than Jesus, she's my greatest inspiration.
