My Speaking Page

Thanks for stopping by! I’m honored that you would consider having me in your church, conference or college. I find taking the stage in front of people tremendously humbling and you’ll find that our whole team will give all that we have to making this a relationship building experience. Relationships and community are core to who we are and so we do our best to fit into what God is doing where you are rather than making you fit into what we’re doing. I look forward to this opportunity. If you’ll scroll down we’ve created this page to give you all the resources you’ll need as we move forward.

A Little About Me

Since my youth I’ve had a passionate love of music that guided my life  to Nashville where I spent 24 years in the Christian music industry as a successful record producer.  I’ve been involved in hundreds of projects and thousands of songs.  Over the years I began to explore  other creative gifts that have allowed me to photograph and design numerous projects that have appeared in Time, CCM, Christian Retailing and Gaither Homecoming (to name a mere handful).

But as I achieved goals and experienced success my anemic faith became more and more apparent.  My soul craved more and I didn’t know where to find it.  Finally I turned to the Scriptures committing myself to read the Bible from cover to cover.  I needed to know if God would authentically speak to me through His Word.  What began that day has turned into a lifelong love affair with the Bible.

I now devote my time to writing, speaking and leading a phenomenon known as the Daily Audio Bible.  The program has been downloaded over 55 million times in the eight years of it’s existence.  I’ve read the Bible on the internet every day since January 1, 2006 and it has found it’s way into every corner and crevasse of the world.  The Daily Audio Bible is now a vast community of people who are seeking the same thing I was the day I began, for God to speak through His Word into the lives they are living.  Taking the journey through the Bible in a year has become the adventure of a lifetime.

My latest book is Passages: How Reading The Bible In A Year Will Change Everything For You (Zondervan, 2012)I also served as the general editor on the NIV Passages Bible (Zondervan, 2012)

I’m happily married to my wife, Jill, and we enjoy life just outside of Nashville, Tennessee with our five children.  In my free time I enjoy my continued theological studies and escape to any mountain I can find as often as possible.
