Thanks for visiting my site!

I am the founding Director of Northwest University’s Center for Leadership Studies. The Center is a platform for leadership events, resources, research, and educational programs serving our students, our community, and our world.

I came to Northwest from being lead pastor and founder of 360church in Berkeley, California, and from working as a Field-Based Team Leader with the Church Multiplication Network.

A love of education led me to earn an M.A. and Ph.D. at Northwestern University, to serve as a university and seminary professor and administrator, and to complete a D.Min. at AGTS.

Along the way, I have loved my work as a conference speaker, author, and consultant.

I like the Pittsburgh Steelers, good coffee and the movies.

My brand is simple: Listen. Learn. Lead. Repeat.


I am married to Janet. We live in Redmond, Washington and have a wire terrier named Ricky.
