A few of Sermons I’ve Preached
I’ve been honored to preach sermons at a few different churches recently. It’s an incredible honor each time a church asks me to share God’s Word from their platform. Below are two sermons that I hope you will find particularly relevant.
Thy Kingdom Come HerE: Work
It was an honor to return to the first church I attended growing up and share my perspective on bringing Christ into the workplace. You can watch the sermon here: https://youtu.be/u0cL6R-mnAI?t=405
Gaining Ground: Margin
As part of a series on “Gaining Ground” to start the year, the Lead Pastor asked me to share some perspective on creating margin (financial & time) in our lives. You can watch the sermon here: https://vimeo.com/253177756

My Podcast - Agile Giants: Lessons from Corporate Innovators

Most of us will spend more time working at a job than doing anything else. Yet, for too many Christians, work is just something we tolerate to “make it to the weekend”.

Leadership Lessons From Nehemiah
Nehemiah was a visionary leader, innovator, and statesman. I believe that the Book of Nehemiah is as good an entrepreneur’s case study as any I use in the classes I teach at Carnegie Mellon. It offers lessons in leadership on par with well-documented examples of exemplary leadership from modern CEOs. Over the course of this 10-day study, we are going to learn by studying the life of Nehemiah. Read the study here:
