Other Work

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 occasionally 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.

Disciple Magazine

Disciple was an outreach of AMG 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 I wrote hundreds of pieces for PHDisciple over the years, and even though it is no longer being updated, the site is still up and running with archives.

Book Projects

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.

FlowerChecker

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. If you need a Sunday school teacher, editing work, graphic design, travel/logistics planning, cartographical derangement rearrangement, website content, press releases, nonprofit/ministry consulting, landscape ideas, or baking advice, just holler.
