Hi. I'm a pastor, publisher and an entrepreneur.
My wife (Beth) and I publish KidzMatter Magazine for those who minister to kids and families in the church. We also publish books, curriculum, run events, do a lot of speaking, and other fun stuff. I love coaching people on ministry, leadership and entrepreneurship.
My first book was 9 Things They Didn’t Teach Me in College About Children’s Ministry (Standard). Since, I have written Pulse (KidzMatter), Pulse 2 (KidzMatter), Give Me Jesus (Baker), and The Volunteer Code (The Leverage Group).
My alma mater is Indiana Wesleyan University, where I currently serve on the Board of Trustees. I was also awarded a Masters in Bible from Pensacola Theological Seminary.
In 1999, I married my best friend, Beth Bishir. Our most important disciples are our three daughters - Luci, Londyn, and Lily. I enjoy reading, traveling with Beth, and spending time in the kitchen.
