I Want to Grow.
I want to grow as a leader. And growing is all about seasons; a lot of work takes place before we can reap a harvest. This is why embracing biblical leadership is so critical.
My name’s Jeremy and this is my blog. I’ve designed it around my personal mission statement: “Serving Christ by cultivating biblical leadership through writing, equipping and communications.” Within a few clicks, you’ll find a wealth of biblical leadership content and useful ministry resources.
I strive to write three times per week. Most content stems from a Christian world-view and contains many biblical references. However, you’ll also find a fair share of personal life experience, as I strive to become the leader God has called me to be.

I have not taken the most direct career path to get me where I am today. Both in education and experience, I have moved in and out of the ministry and business worlds. I don’t believe this has been by mistake. God has clearly meshed these two career paths to provide me with some valuable insight into reaching and teaching others.
Over the past fifteen years, I have served in a variety of ministries; youth, college, men’s, small groups, outreach, missions, wilderness, camp, preaching and teaching. In contrast, I have also held roles in the marketplace, specifically selling and coordinating guest experiences within the Hospitality and Tourism Industry. These positions have particularly impacted my view on outreach and evangelism. I often find myself wondering how a guest would experience a certain church or ministry.
When I’m not working, I obviously enjoy writing blog posts or content for book projects. Moreover, connecting with other people energizes me; be it face-to-face or online through social media. I’m a podcast and audio book junky, based more in non-fiction genres with leadership content or How To themes. I like anything made by Apple and find myself dabbling in photo and video editing from time to time.
When the tech side of my brain needs a break, I enjoy fishing, hunting or riding my motorcycle. Cruising down a country road on my ’79 Shovelhead is pure bliss. In 2013, I decided to match my love for motorcycles with my desire to share the Gospel, by joining the Holy Ghost Riders Motorcycle Ministry.
I’m an average guitar player and percussionist. I’ve always been involved in music and church worship teams. My iTunes playlists carry a wide variety of genres, all depending on my mood or what I’m doing at the time. Spending time in God’s creation also refreshes me, so I try to engage in a wide variety of outdoor pursuits, depending on the season. And no matter what I’m doing, coffee is a staple. From high-priced espresso to gas-station joe; I’ve tried it all and I’m just happy to get a cup.
Lastly and most importantly, I cherish my time with my wife (Nicole) and our two boys (Jude and Luke). Outdoor activity with them is often the most memorable. However, some days, nothing’s better than a family movie night, with all four of us snuggled on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn.
I try to remind myself daily, that biblical leadership begins at home.
