Being the fourth of four boys, my life has always been an adventure. Growing up, I found myself being challenged and dared (often against my will) by my older brothers. Now, I am finding that this was preparing me for how God would challenge and dare me to accept His adventures. These adventures have taken me everywhere from a seemingly small town in Virginia to a massive city in Australia. I have met so many amazing people along the way, and I am excited for you to meet a few of them too.
I am tri-lingual in English, memes, and movie quotes. Well, at least I’m believing that someday two of those will count as languages.
I love hard conversations and connecting our generation to truth in a world full of confusion. It is clear that God has put something special on our generation—His sons and daughters. I’m passionate to see us abandon limiting labels from the world and step into the fullness of what God has for us.
In my spare time, I hunt sharks, surf, snowboard, and it’s even been rumored that I once caught a wild mountain sheep in New Zealand. In addition to getting second place in the world’s sexiest man competition, I’ve also met the world’s sexiest man.
I live to connect people to the God who makes the impossible possible. My life is evidence of this coming from the impossibly helpless . . . just ask the principal, whose office I used to frequent during my in-school suspensions.
My name means the defender of mankind and that’s exactly what I’m fighting for . . . you.
Hello! I am a Colorado native, and though I love living right next to the Rocky Mountains, I still enjoy long walks on the beach (no, this isn’t my dating profile).
My 21 years of life have felt like a series of God revealing different aspects of Himself to me during the adventures we have taken. When I was little, it was His tender Fatherhood, then His constant pursuit of my heart, and now, His sovereignty as my King. He will never be done revealing Himself to you and me . . . and I love that!
You can usually find me carrying around 4 to 5 books (2 journals, 2 Bibles, and my latest read) or destroying the alien covenant in Halo #ProudNerd.
I am an advocate for life-giving words, and I have a passion to see my generation radically revived and brought back to their true identity as sons and daughters of God. I’m excited to continue discovering bits and pieces of God alongside you!
I wear lots of hats: Husband, Dad, Son, Brother, Boss, just to name a few. All my life I’ve been pulled to a higher level than what I thought I was ready for. I was married at 22, had my first kid at 23, became the COO of Messenger International at 24, and co-wrote a book at 27.
After years of navigating my own insecurities and doubt, I’m finally starting to lean into what God’s doing in and through me. At 32, I’m the old man of this group, and I like it that way.
Someone once asked me to sum up my passion in less than ten words. After a moment’s hesitation, I answered: “to not undersell the gospel.” The gospel has been marginalized and stripped of its power, so I’m dedicating my life to helping people realize the beauty and wonder of what it means to be sons and daughters of God.
Some people call me Juli, and four tiny people call me “Mom.” I’m 29 going on 40, yet somehow I’m also 29 going on 18 . . .
The past decade of my life has been a non-stop flurry of falling in love, growing up, and having babies. As an ill-equipped 19-year-old, I dove head first into all things marriage and family. I hustled and pretended my way into what I thought a mom and wife should be. This left me confused, exhausted, and disappointed.
The facades I’ve spent years cultivating are beginning to fade, and now God is leading me on a journey of discovering His design for my life. I’ve had glimpses of the sweet freedom He has to offer, and I’m determined to experience more.
If you enjoy Star Wars, we have a lot to talk about. I’m 29 years old and the second born of the A-Team. I live in Colorado with my wife (Jess) and family. You can find me hiking, working out, or playing a game of pick-up football.
I like formulas (it’s the math in me), so I am constantly looking for ways to uncover practical principles and truths that will help other people. One of the greatest discoveries I have had is that we as Christians can practically renew our minds and lead our emotions with the truths found in Scripture.
I love reading stories of extraordinary acts by ordinary people. I believe many in my generation (including myself) desire to live amazing stories like these, and I am excited to walk alongside you as God unfolds what He has for our lives.
