About

I’m Neil, a follower of Jesus, husband, dad, and minister. My wife, Katie, and I live in Russellville, Arkansas with our two daughters, Eden and Graceann. I’m the director of the CCSC at Arkansas Tech University, Pathways Director for Kairos Church Planting, and the author of The Need for College Ministry: Awakening the Church to One of the Most Receptive Mission Fields in the World.

Have you ever been tempted to keep something to yourself? It happens to me all the time. I don’t mean something special or intimate that would be cheapened if you shared it. I mean something that someone else would benefit from or enjoy. I’ve already confessed. Yet, I don’t want to be that way. That’s where this blog comes in. I want to share with you

My faith in God and commitment to follow Jesus are what orient my life and give me purpose. But, I’ve been misguided plenty of times. I’ve doubted. I’ve struggled. Like you, I’m human. As I learn to be a faithful follower of Jesus, I want to share what God is teaching me

When it comes to family, I want to do everything I can today to live in such a way that it sets our children up to become faithful followers of Jesus and helps me and Katie to be best friends in the twilight of life. I still haven’t found a way to do that perfectly. But, as we live and learn, I want to share what’s going on in our family.

This is me and my good friend, Scott Lambert of Kairos Church Planting, on stage at CHRISTeens

This is our CCSC leadership team for the 2015-16 school year

I love leadership. As far back as I can remember, I’ve had the desire to lead people. One of the primary ways God has shaped and refined my character is through my work as a minister. I’m always being challenged to grow. As a result, I’ll read, listen to, or watch just about anything on leadership. I want to share what I’m learning about ministry and leadership.

So, to bring it all together, this blog exists to share what God is teaching me, share what’s going on in our family, and share what I’m learning about ministry and leadership.

I share something each Monday with occasional posts on Thursdays. You can subscribe in the sidebar on the right. Here are links to a few of my most popular posts…
