I became a Christian when I was nine years old. When I was thirty-three, I planted a church, which I now pastor. Somewhere in there I became a man, a husband and father, an ordained minister, a mixed martial artist, and professional maker of stuff.

I’m also a Registered Radiologic Technologist who occasionally moonlights in Operating Rooms. I’m proficient in multiple modalities including X-ray, CT, MRI, and OR Fluoroscopy.

I enjoy writing about Bible doctrine, practical theological matters, making things, manhood, skill-collecting, politics, American culture, church “culture”, and whatever else I find interesting at the moment.

I write these things from the perspective of a Christian, particularly an independent Baptist Pastor and church-planter.

Semper efficio!

This is a personal blog. This blog only attempts to capture topics and ideas that I think about a lot or find interesting. It does not purport to be the final word. Some of the subjects I treat are not addressed directly in Scripture. In such instances, it is hard to draw a straight line from the Bible to the topic at hand. Instead, I must use a process of reasoning.
