AKA The Feral Pastor, I'm a Lutheran pastor in the ELCA, currently serving as Pastor for Discipleship at St. Stephen's in West Saint Paul. Long term I am hoping to help launch missional communities that look and live more like extended families than Sunday morning worship service churches. My main interest these days is in discipleship strategies, with a particular interest in the simple/organic/house church movement and how it can foster meaningful faith life in the postmodern, post-Christendom world that's upon us. Drawing extensively from the resources of 3dmovements.com. Married, two stepsons, two adopted daughters from Vietnam. First career was research biologist. Embracing postmodernity and not grieving the end of Christendom.
