Bible Studies

These books contain the small group studies I wrote for our network of house churches in Las Vegas, NV from 2002-2006. They include cartoon style illustrations, a guided reading plan, study and discussion questions, and a “Just for Kids” section to include children in the conversation.

Teaching Videos

You are welcome to explore my library of videos. Each module below is an ever-growing playlist. Click the playlist menu to expand and explore.

Use them in your small group, teaching, or for personal study. I’d love to hear the ways you have used them.

The Journey is a series of videos designed to guide you on your spiritual journey that leads deeper into the love of God. It is designed around three questions:

Where Am I?

Where Am I Going?

How Do I Get There?

Use these videos at your own pace as a personal tool or with your small group.

Scroll through over 30 animations that explore theological and biblical concepts.

These animations illuminate specific passages of scripture.

Sermons and Podcasts

I am part of the preaching team at Easter Lutheran Church in Eagan, MN. We record a weekly podcast that discusses the upcoming text and theme of worship. You can also listen to all our sermons here.

Every once in a while I will take the audio of a sermon and combine it with the visuals I use while preaching.

Welcome to my podcast Following the Cloud

There are two types of episodes:

  1. Sermons. These are simply the audio of each sermon that I preach.
  2. Visual Preacher Interviews. If you can’t watch the interview, listen to the audio on your podcast app.

Happy listening.

Online Resources

Explore Every Book of the Bible

Find cartoons, illustrations, videos, commentaries, and other helpful information about every book of the Bible.

Spiritual Formation

Explore resources that will help you learn to grow deeper in the love of God. I’ve created many tools that dive into spiritual practices, personality types, missional spirituality, and more.

Theology

Theology is one of those scary words that either intimidates people or rallies them for a fight. It shouldn’t be that way. Theology is just the process of talking (or doodling) about God.

I have a PhD in Missional Leadership and have written and cartooned my way through such topics as The Trinity, The Church, Luther’s Small Catechsim, The Apostles’ Creed, Postmodern Epistemology, and more.
