Being asked to be a coach at the Evangel Dean School of Urban Church Planting combined two of my favorite things, church planting and coaching.

The Spirit of the Lord is moving in so many incredible ways as we faithfully and aggressively move on our vision to identify, equip, and release indigenous urban leaders to plant churches and facilitate church planting movements.
In Fall of 2000 I was an overzealous urban church planter in the Over-The-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati. Not too many thought it was a bright idea to start a church there.
I didn’t know what to expect when I attended the Evangel School of Urban Church Planting.
