I was born and raised in Olympia, WA, and educated at Calvin College, Fuller Theological Seminary and Calvin Theological Seminary. However, I learned the most from my years starting Sanctuary Christian Reformed Church in a gentrifying neighborhood in Seattle. My wife Lily and I moved from Seattle to NYC to start Dwell Church. When I'm not involved in ministry, I enjoy running, playing bass, travel and visiting the museums and jazz clubs of NYC. We live, work, play and serve in Nolita.
