One of the blessings and curses of online presence is the wide array of contact requests I receive, from simple theological questions to deeper inquiries regarding strategy, planning and coaching. Unfortunately, I cannot answer them all!
Time is the most valuable resource any of us have. Once it is spent, there is no getting it back. For that reason, even though I am happy to help you, I also cannot afford to give all of my time away.
For that reason, both to ensure that my hours are spent well on behalf of my family, my congregation and my own goals, and to ensure that you are serious about finding real answers to your questions, time on my calendar is available for a reasonable cost.
I do reserve the right to cancel any appointment which I deem to be in poor spirit. I am not willing to meet with individuals whose sole goal is to tear me down or extract a pound of flesh. I expect integrity, kindness and respect, even as I endeavor to give it.

The third of four sessions delivered to the students contemplating seminary education at Christ Academy on the campus of Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN, during the summer of 2019.
Taking a break from dogmatic and exegetical theology, we spend on hour on the “practical,” digging into the often-overlooked first-article//fourth/seventh-commandments “natural” law of time, information and personal self-management. “For if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church?” (1 Tim 3:5.)
Both of my books in one hour and fifteen minutes. No joke.
This was the first of four hours of presentations given at Christ Academy on the campus of Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN, the summer of 2019. The remaining presentations will be released at this site in due time.
