8 moments that shaped my 2011

Socrates is credited with saying, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” So with that intent, in no particular order, here’s a quick list of the moments that had the greatest influence in shaping my 2011.



1. Losing my Job

Talk about a crazy and life shaping moment! First time that’s ever happened. Note to self…let’s not do that again.

2. Joining the Sun Valley Community Church Staff

I’m thrilled to be serving as an Executive Pastor at one of the most incredible churches in America.

3. Taking my girls on their first Mission Trip to Guatemala

This trip was the catalyst for all kinds of great conversations with my 6 & 7-year-old daughters. I hope that God uses it to nurture in them a passion for the nations!

4. Celebrating 15 Years of Marriage

A week in Hawaii was the perfect way to celebrate 15 years of marriage with Lisa. I love my kids…but 7 nights with no kids was a big win!

5. A Month Long visit with my Parents

I know, sounds like a nightmare to most people. But it was great having my parents spend a month with us. They’re wonderful grandparents and gave us the opportunity to head out to Hawaii. Thanks Mom and Dad!

6. Going Multi-Site

Moving from one campus to three this year has been an incredible moment to lead through. So excited that God trusted this opportunity to us!

7. Participating in a Coaching Group

This was the first time in a while that I’ve been in a structured learning environment. Jumping in Tony Morgan’s Coaching Group has pushed me to continue to grow and develop. Thanks Tony!

8. Coaching, Consulting, and Speaking

Speaking at conference workshops, camps, consulting with churches, and providing personal coaching never gets old. I love helping churches accomplish their vision!
