Before creating Thresholds, I was the lead architect and director of NieuCommunities, a collective of mentoring communities sprinkled around the world that have helped shape a new generation of leaders. Our story and our learnings can be found in the book, Thin Places, which I co-authored with my colleague Jon Huckins. I have helped birth and lead communities of faith in over a dozen countries and have mentored leaders in diverse cultural settings across the globe.
As a certified coach with over 30 years of experience working across diverse cultures and religious traditions, I am comfortable coaching leaders and churches through difficult challenges and into your God-fueled dreams. As an apostolic leader, I am particularly drawn to help leaders who are ready to reimagine how to be the bride of Christ in post-church landscapes and to boldly move with the Spirit into the unknown wild.
I am the husband of 1 amazing wife, the father of 3 awesome kids (plus 3 more by marriage), a doting grandfather, and a follower of God in the way of Jesus. I have a Masters of Leadership and Theology from Talbot Seminary and I currently lead a neighborhood-based faith community in Golden Hill, an eclectic neighborhood in downtown San Diego where multiple cultures intersect and seek to find strength and harmony in their diversity. This faith community–though far from perfect–has become an equipping hub and a hope-filled sacrament of a new way of being church.
