I was born and raised in the Bay Area, but have been in Portland, Oregon (USA) for many years, with my wife T and our three kids – Jude, Moses and Sunday

I'm the founding pastor of Bridgetown Church, right in the center of the city (by Powell's Books if you've ever been to Portland). Our church is built around the very simple idea of practicing the way of Jesus, together, in Portland. We believe that the way of Jesus is exactly that, a way of life.

I’m also the author of six books: The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry, God has a Name, Garden City, Loveology, My Name is Hope, and my newest: Live No Lies which is now a New York Times Best Seller.

I’m currently starting a non-profit called Practicing the Way. Our aim is to create resources for discipleship and formation in local churches in post-Christian contexts. Coming in Fall 2022.

For those of you curious about my education, I have a Masters Degree in Biblical and Theological Studies from Western Seminary. Mostly, I’m just a voracious reader and avid-listener.

My life vision is to be with Jesus, become like him, and do what he would do if he were me. For those of on a similar journey, may I serve as a companion on the Way…
