I am the Lead Pastor of The Table Church in Washington, D.C.. I met my wife Emily at Bethel College, Indiana, from which I graduated in 2009 with a degree focusing on philosophy, biblical studies, and ministry. In 2015 I graduated from Asbury Theological Seminary with a Masters of Divinity, focusing on biblical studies and theology. We have the joy of raising our four year old daughter and one year old son.
I've been fortunate that the majority of my life I've known, basically, what my calling is: to work on the behalf of the Church, helping her pursue holiness in Christ. It is my hope that, in some small way, my writings will help others pursue Jesus more fully and know His love for them more deeply.
Imitable is a word describing something worthy of imitation. To be imitable is to:
embody excellence that
calls for participation by others.
I believe that all that the Church does - through worship, discipleship, our engagement with culture - ought to be imitable. It should draw others into it causing them to want to be a part of it. Imitable.org will help the Church pursue this goal, suggesting practices and disciplines to help us become a more imitable people of God, pursuing excellence in our journey in such a way that the world can't help but want to be a part.
