2019-2020 conference themes: Seated, Guarded, and Chosen. I regularly speak before audiences large and small on my favorite topics. I currently speak on the overlooked verbs in scripture, seated, endure, guarded, included, and chosen. I love teaching on identity in Christ, evangelism, prayer, enjoying God’s word, writing with flair, building community, emotional maturity, and teaching. I also love training teachers and public speakers to develop their skills.
