It's been a while since I've posted a picture of my favorite little buddy, my niece Ruthie McClure. She's not quite crawling yet, but she sure looks like she's going to take off at any moment. Just look at the mischief in her eyes!
After working as an environmental engineer for a few years and a policy advisor on Capitol Hill for a few years, I finally landed as the Pastor of Discipleship at National Community Church in Washington, DC. I am originally from Mobile, Alabama, so I enjoy hot humid weather, football, and fried dill pickles. My Southern heritage also prompts me to throw moonpies to people during my talks at retreats and summits. I am married to the wonderful Ryan Zempel, who writes for a political website by day but sings and dances on the local community theatre stage at night.
