Hi, I’m James.

I live in Lincoln, Nebraska, with my family, and I help lead a non-profit that mobilizes the church to care for vulnerable kids. Before that, I served as a local church pastor and a campus minister.

Now, if you’re looking around on a Christian blog, you might be wondering, What kind of Christian is he?

I’m the Jesus-kind of Christian.

I’m not much for labels and don’t fit neatly into any one theological (or political) box. Read a bit from this site and you’ll figure that out soon enough.

What’s this site all about?

This website is a collection of thoughts, observations, and experiences in life, disciple-making, leadership, theology, and culture. Hopefully, what you find can help you as you follow Jesus.

Looking for something specific? The categories at the bottom of the screen or that handy magnifying glass up top will be your best friends. The easiest way to follow along is to subscribe at the bottom of the page.

Need a speaker?

Are you looking for a speaker for an event, retreat, or camp for adults or students? I’d be honored to partner with you in your ministry by speaking at your event. Here are some links to a few messages I’ve preached:


It should go without saying, but here it is: the views on this website are my own and do not necessarily reflect the beliefs, convictions, or opinions of any organization or church that I’m a part of. Now you know.

Should you read something here you disagree with or that makes you feel uncomfortable, I’d encourage you to reach out to me. I love hearing “the other side” and engaging in good conversation about important things with interesting people (that’s you!). So, I’d be honored to talk more with you.
