Bio Image

I love the established church. In 2006, I started this blog as a place to give practical insights for established churches. I serve as the lead pastor of West Bradenton Baptist Church, and I co-host the Est.Church podcast. I’m the president of Church Answers, the co-founder and co-owner of Rainer Publishing, and the president of Revitalize Network. I have a wonderful wife, four fun children, a smart old dog, a dumb young dog, and a cat my daughters insisted on keeping.

I have a B.S. in Finance and Marketing from the University of South Carolina, an M.A. in Missiology from Southern Seminary, and a Ph.D. in Leadership Studies at Dallas Baptist University.

I’m available for consulting, coaching, speaking, preaching, and writing. Contact me here.
