Hi, my name is John and I love coffee. There are few things in life that I feel merit precise orchestration with no room for error, coffee is one of them. My life belongs to Jesus. I graduated from Biola University in Spring ’13 with a BA in political science and am currently a graduate student at Liberty University. I am content finding a local coffee shop and writing or reading for hours. Some of my favorite authors are C.S. Lewis, Eric Metaxas, John Bunyan and A.W. Tozer. I served in the Marines. Ooh-rah!

"It’s time for [church leaders] to go on a journey of renewal," say Alan Hirsch and Mark Nelson. This journey requires us to refuse to simplify our faith...and to be comfortable having more questions than answers.
