The Chalmers Center
By day, I serve at The Chalmers Center for Economic Development at Covenant College, a group dedicated to helping churches think differently about poverty and then do something about it. Though it’s a great blessing to be a part of Chalmers’ team, and many of the themes of our work there will show up in my writing on this site, all content and views expressed here are solely my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of The Chalmers Center.
At Chalmers, I sometimes write blog posts, and also work on producing online courses like:
As opportunities present themselves, I hope to have more entries in this space. These aren’t “my books” per se, but those by other authors/groups who I have assisted in some capacity (editing, co-authoring, graphics design, etc.) so that my name is attached to the project.

(Editorial and Design Assistant)
Disciple was an outreach of AMG International (where I worked from 2006-2016) designed to equip & encourage teachers of the Bible. I came to AMG in 2006 as the editor of Pulpit Helps, a print periodical started in 1975, and started Disciple to continue that work when we took PH out of print in 2009. I wrote hundreds of pieces for PH & Disciple over the years, and even though it is no longer being updated, archives are still available on the website.
About two years ago, I discovered (through a friend) the Czech-based app FlowerChecker. Through this handy service, you can upload a photo of a plant with your smartphone, and actual human beings with botany training and experience will ID it for you. I liked what I saw, asked the founder if he needed any help with the Eastern U.S./Greater Appalachia biome, and found myself working on the back end. It’s been a fun way to help others and pick up a little extra cash in my spare time.
Odds ‘n’ Ends
I freelance at, well, a lot of things, mostly for free. If you need a Sunday school teacher, editing work, graphic design, travel/logistics planning, website content, press releases, nonprofit/ministry consulting, landscape ideas, or baking advice, just holler.
