About Me/Contact

Author, Pastor, Memoirist

I live by the Word and by words, propelled by the experiences that transform my faith. I’m the pastor of a small Presbyterian church in Bethesda, Maryland, where I preach weekly. I also write spiritual memoirs and essays. Some recent highlights:


A Pastor’s #MeToo Story (Christian Century, Jan 2018) cover story




Ruined: a memoir (Tyndale, 2016) winner of Christianity Today Book Award




An opinion piece about sexual purity culture (Washington Post, Dec 2016)




Chasing the Divine in the Holy Land (Eerdmans, 2012)
