I'm blessed to serve and support NFL Chaplains in their roles as they provide leadership to the various teams.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to be a “regular” of NBC’s KC Live TV show every other week to talk about life from a pastor’s perspective. Although it's a little more "self-help" than I'd prefer, at least it's a chance to build trust with the KC viewing area and open doors to share the gospel. You’ll see a sampling of the most recent clips. If there is an episode that you don’t see, let me know and I’ll find it for you.

Support this ministry - help change the world
Although I serve the NFL, I am supported through the generous financial support from individuals, churches and businesses who believe in the idea that by reaching professional athletes with the gospel message, you can truly impact the world for Christ. This is was a huge step of faith for my family in 2014 but we are believing that as God has led us in this endeavor, He will provide.
We are on staff with Athletes in Action, the athletic branch of Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru). Cru began in 1951 and is the largest Christian ministry in the world.
Thank you so much for believing in the mission and helping reaching hundreds of thousands of people for Christ.
