About me

Industry Religion
Occupation Pastor of Discipleship
Location Washington, D.C., United States
Introduction 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. Check out my new small group curriculum, Sacred Roads.
Interests SEC Football, Theatre, Politics, Innovative Church
Favorite Movies Braveheart, Gladiator, The Age of Innocence, Luther, The Kingdom of Heaven, The Wizard of Oz, The Princess Bride, The Star Wars Trilogy (the original)
