Hi, I’m James.

I belong to King Jesus. After that, I’m a husband, father, campus minister, leader, writer, and reader. I’m married to my lovely wife Carly and we have four awesome kids.

My wife and I host a podcast together called Everyday Disciples. We also work together for a campus ministry (we see a lot of each other), reaching students at our alma mater, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Prior to that, I served a wonderful little church as a pastor in Clifton Park, NY (just north of Albany).

I’m also a certified financial coach. I run a website called Money Rehab where I help people get or stay financially healthy. If you want to learn more, head on over there.

What’s this blog all about?

This website is a mix of all-things disciple-making, mission, movement, theology, life, and culture. About 13 years-worth of reflections. Hopefully, what you find can help you as you follow Jesus. If you’re curious about Jesus, hopefully something here helps you make sense of him. If that’s you, drop me a message. I’d love to talk with you.
