I also dabble in illustration, front end development, print design, photography & fine art. I’m constantly discovering new ways to make Christ famous and be an artist for His Kingdom.
My wife and I have finally released our FREE online discipleship curriculum! I've never poured more blood, sweat, tears, and late nights into a project. We've found a few discipleship tools in book or paper format, and a few online but they have a cost barrier. We really wanted to create something effective and available for anyone anytime. We all learn differently. This tool allows you to watch, listen, discover in scripture, look, exercise, read quotes and great books to train you to be a disciple of Jesus. I really believe in this material and I've used it first hand with 15 or so young adults.
Along with our web-based curriculum, we also created 'Scenario Cards' for practicing common tough questions or statements that disciplees typically ask or mention. It was a real challenge to whole punch and bind all 40 sets of flashcards! We tried these out and they were a hit. The great thing about these is that they can be passed down or used as a great conversation starter to discipleship! We also created some 3x3 stickers just for marketing purposes.
Serve Palm Beach County is an open source campaign with the intention to inspire Christians and their churches to serve in their local community. After noticing a lack of opportunities and partnerships in congregations I've been a part of, a few friends and I assembled this mini campaign. We made handout cards, stickers, and we plan to meet with local church leaders to show them this new resource. The single page website lists ongoing serving opportunities with local non profits. Serve PBC also has social media pages and posts regular opportunities on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. The open source group currently meets up monthly to work on this new campaign.Visit ServePBC.org Github
This is some volunteer work I did for The Timothy Initiative. TTI is an international church planting organization with the intent of making disciples of Jesus. I designed this poster completely in vector art/textures so it can be scaled or resized (Oh, and it has! ha). I learned how costly vextures are for your CPU. They are better kept locked once they are in place.Larger View Visit ttionline.org
This is an easy-to-use app to empower communication & purpose in small church groups. I've been working on this for the past few years and it's come a long way. The app doesn't yet have a name yet, but it does have a developed proof of concept. All screenshots shown have been designed in development. The UI is not yet complete, but you get the picture. I'm looking to crowd-fund this app on Kickstarter or Indiegogo and make it a free open-source app for anyone to use. Making an app is quite an adventure if you have a full-time job! This Project is being made "For the Church, By the Church." Please contact if you have any interest in working with me on this or other apps!View Proof of Concept
That's a great question! I have been asking myself for quite some time now. To be honest, I’m just starting to discover the possibilities. Surprisingly, God has decided to bless me with spiritual “gifts” on top of my life’s “talents”. I’m surprised to discover that these new gifts are actually competing with my passion for art and design!
In the past, I’ve struggled with apathy, existentialism, self-righteousness, institutional religion, lack of spiritual leadership, lack of community, and addiction to sin. In 2010, God revealed himself to me through his Word like never before. I was challenged with the thought that I was a believer in a book I hadn’t even read: the Bible. Struggling in scepticism and doubts, I started that year reading this book cover to cover alone on a dock during my lunch break. Authors like Francis Chan, Shane Claiborne, and David Platt introduced me to Jesus’ call to “Follow Me” and be His disciple.
Needless to say, I’ve accepted this call to be Jesus’ apprentice and He has filled me with purpose, spiritual fruit, and love that lasts. Through patience and prayer, my wife joined me in this pursuit to lose our lives for his sake (Mat 10:39). We now thrive in true community at a local congregation and take advanced biblical training classes. It's now our passion to lead a small group of young adult ‘disciples making disciples’. Through some inner-church difficulties and trials, I have developed a new passion for ecclesiology and church history. Only God knows my future path and how I will get to incorporate these gifts and talents for His purposes.
I rest in the fact that there is nothing I can do to please or displease God any further. He looks at me through the faithfulness and perfection of his son, Jesus. This is the gospel (“good news”, Rom 5:8) and it is indeed good!
"Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him;"
