I married my high school sweetheart, Julie. We have three kids, Abby, Grant and Ashley. As licensed foster parents our home is sometimes a little fuller. We worship and serve at Allen Bible Church where I am also an elder.
A LITTLE MORE TO THE STORY …
In January of 2000 I joined the ministry of Bluefish TV because I was excited to use my radio/television/film degree to communicate Biblical truth. Over the years I grew from the role of producer to Executive Vice President of Product Development to eventually President. I lead a passionate team who create and distribute all the video resources that Bluefish TV produces each year. Our team has worked closely with Max Lucado, Francis Chan, Erwin McManus, Donald Miller, Doug Fields, Margaret Feinberg, Les and Leslie Parrott, Todd Phillips, David Nasser, Louie Giglio, and a host of other great teachers.
To date over 110,000 churches have used at least one Bluefish TV resource. In a country where there are more screens (TV, computer and phone) than people, we love using those screens to encourage people to live out their faith.
Alongside of Bluefish TV, in 2000 I founded RightNow. Through some experiences in my early 20’s I realized that my generation is longing to use their God-given passions and skills to do something significant now instead of waiting until their 50’s. We are willing to trade in our pursuit of the American Dream for a world that desperately needs Christ. But many times we just don’t know what step to take next. RightNow has connected over 2000 people to specific opportunities to make a difference in their neighborhoods, cities and the world.
RightNow has also created a leadership event called The RightNow Conference to help leaders discover ways to mobilize people into action.
One thing I love about my roles with Bluefish TV and RightNow is that I get to combine my love for storytelling with some of the best stories in the world. I have traveled to Sudan, China, Cuba, India, Romania, Argentina, Tanzania, Kyrgyzstan and other places shooting documentaries of regular people who God is using in incredible ways.
After graduating from Baylor University in 1999 I married my high school sweetheart, Julie. We now live in Allen, Texas and love being parents of Abby, Grant and Ashley. We are licensed foster parents and so many times our house is a little fuller as we add a baby to our home for a season. In 2004 Julie and I were part of a core group of families that started Allen Bible Church. The first meeting was actually in our living room before we moved into a school in our area. I serve alongside a group of Godly men as an Elder of the church and love that I get to learn on a daily basis about what it practically means to be the church.
