About

Christian. Husband. Dad. Publisher. Pastor. Author. Teacher.
Guy on a journey.

I am the Vice President, Publisher for Thomas Nelson Bibles at HarperCollins Christian Publishing. Previously, I’ve work as the Director of Advancement and Global Impact Churches with the Baptist World Alliance and frequently speak at churches and conferences. I earned a Master of Divinity from Beeson Divinity School and a Doctor of Ministry from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. For several years, I worked for LifeWay Christian Resources in both LifeWay Research and as the Director of Adult Ministry Publishing. Throughout the years, I’ve served as a pastor, church planter, and professor.

My latest published work is the video-based Bible study Pursuing Holiness: Applications from James. In 2016, I published Habits for Our Holiness: How the Spiritual Disciplines Grow Us Up, Draw Us Together, and Send Us Out with Moody Publishers. I’ve coauthored two other books: Compelled: Living the Mission of God and Transformational Discipleship: How People Really Grow. I was also the general editor of The Mission of God Study Bible. Along the way, I have written the small-group studies Storm Shelter: Psalms of God’s Embrace, Compelled by Love: The Journey to Missional Living and Live in the Word, plus contributed to The Great Commission Resurgence: Fulfilling God’s Mandate in Our Lifetime.

I have had the privilege in the past of serving as the Assistant Professor of Leadership and Biblical Studies for Houston Baptist University and an adjunct professor for Union University.

I have worked with multiple non-profit ministries to further gospel work in the world. Currently, I am on the Board of Directors for the Florida Baptist Children’s Homes and One More Child.

My wife, Angie, and I live in Florida. We have two young adult sons Andrew and Chris.
