The most important human relationship I have is with my wife, Faith Stevens. She is an amazing wife, mother and partner in life.
Next to Faith, the most important thing I can do is be a great dad to our four amazing kids. Heather is married to Taylor Snodgrass, and they are both on staff at Cross Point Church in Nashville. Megan works for Open Door Ministries in Denver, Colorado. Hunter is in college at Cedarville University studying mechanical engineering. And Taylor is finishing up his high school career in Conroe, TX.
For 20 years I was on staff with Granger Community Church. It was a privilege to watch the church grow from a congregation of 350 meeting in a movie theater–to a world-impact ministry reaching more than 6,000 locally and tens of thousands around the world. Although I said goodbye in August 2014, It was an honor to lead more than 120 staff and see God use them to truly make a difference.
I believe the local church has the potential to inspire change and transform communities, and because of that, I love doing whatever I can to help pastors and church leaders. Sometimes that means talking about a failure. Other times, it means offering highly practical advice on a proven method or tactic. Whether I’m speaking at a conference or workshop, consulting with a pastor on the phone, or leading a long-term coaching network–I find great fulfillment in adding value to leaders whenever and wherever I can.
