I’m the pastor of Thomas Road Baptist Church (trbc.org) in Lynchburg, Virginia. ¬†Also, the Chairman of the Board of Gleaning for the World (gftw.org), rated the most effective charity of 2011 by Forbes Magazine. ¬†Author of three books: InnovateChurch (Broadman & Holman), One Great Truth (Howard Publishers) and 1000 Days (Thomas Nelson Publishers.)

Far more important than those tidbits though…I’m married to Shari, dad to Jonathan Jr., Jessica, Natalie and Nicholas.
