Hello

Welcome

I’m a renegade Executive Pastor and a professional Holy Mischief Maker helping others to engage in the mysterious disruption of love in action. It is my deepest desire to collaborate with others to become all that God created and calls us to be while we transform the world. 

What's Holy Mischief All About?

The beginnings

The beginnings

The beginnings

I was called to ministry in 1998 while on a church van travelling into Atlanta. I ran from this call for many years but finally accepted that I was on the path toward ordination. I went to seminary and was commissioned in 2005. In 2006 I was starting a church with my colleague Allan when he suddenly passed away one week before our launch service. Allan had a special way of making people feel like they were having fun while also making life meaningful. After many years of healing and soul searching, I discovered the special sauce that makes life both fun and meaningful. I discovered #HolyMischief.

IMAGINE

The beginnings

The beginnings

 Imagine a world where kindness is the norm. Where we truly loved our neighbor.  A world where love is the default.


Imagine a movement that is not so much about a place or a program, but about people and a purpose.


Imagine a movement where faith was not dictated by a calendar.


Imagine a movement where people engaged in fun  acts of kindness that   also  renewed their heart and  minds.


This is what happens when we engage in #HolyMischief. Holy Mischief is the mysterious disruption of God’s love in action. This disruption leaves us curious about how to experience more of the excitement that happens when God shows up  in simple acts of kindness.


I believe that God creative each of us to share His love in unique and creative ways that transform the world and makes meaning of our lives.
