I love Jesus, my wife, our seven kids, Eysals coffee, Apple computers, motorcycles, chocolate, learning, volunteers, the Church, Gibson Les Paul guitars, the blues, Motown, laughing at myself, training, coaching, mentoring, equipping, encouraging, the Bears, the Cubs, and I'm obsessed with the disciplemaking genius of Jesus. Some of my lifetime goals are to chase a tornado, drive in a smash up derby, ride a motorcycle with my wife from Chicago to LA on old Rt. 66, and survive parenthood. I'm also the Executive Director of Cadre Ministries—whose obsession is to encourage and equip people to love God, love people, and make disciplemakers. As Cadre missionaries of encouragement and equipping, we live by faith and trust God to financially provide for our family and our ministry with Cadre. We know we can't do this wild and wonderful Cadre adventure without God and crazy friends like you.
