I am the founding editor of Urban Faith, The Magazine and author of The Tenacity of Hope. A Best-Faith Based blog winner, my passions are leadership, discipleship, and Christian writing and publishing. I am currently the Managing Director of The Billy Graham Center for Evangelism at Wheaton College.
On this site I write about Christ, Sports, and Culture through a gospel lens. My mission here is to faithfully engage the digital community in matters of faith. I live at the intersection of culture and the Cross. I speak at various conferences and events, touching on relationships, discipleship, spiritual disciplines, and faithfulness to Scripture. Currently, I live in Chicago, Illinois with my wife Sheridan, our son, John III aka Scooter and daughter, Shiloh.
