January 30th I was burned out from my previous church. Earlier that month, I’d had a piece published about youth and burnout that caught the attention of Anne Helen Petersen. We chatted for a bit and then I told her that I was moving to Durham to help pastor a church re-start that would pay off people’s debts. She replied, “WOW. I'd actually really love to profile that, if you'd consider it.” After a long year in ministry, I was really unsure of my calling. I was unsure if what we’d do would work or if people would be into it. Anne’s been a great support of not only my writing but my work as a pastor.

And now, eleven months later, you can read that profile here. I’m really grateful for the job she did and that the story of what we’re trying to do is out the world.
