Authentic conversation on a heart to heart level is pretty much my favorite thing in the world. I'm generally a confident and decisive person. Reading, learning new things, and exploring ideas add joy to my life.

I'm also very serious about my faith. I'm a pastor working on starting new churches, but more importantly I am doing my best to orient my life around gratitude for all God has done for me.

I also love the outdoors, especially camping and hiking. I've been to a lot of amazing places. I'd like to visit all the national parks in my lifetime. When I can't get outside, I still like to get a good workout. I usually exercise 4x a week and eat pretty healthy.

Reading is another great pleasure of mine. I could go on and on about books. Some of my favorites are Classic Russian novels by Dostoyevski and Tolstoy like Crime and Punishment and Anna Karenina. I enjoy a number of other classic novels some of my favorite authors are Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters. I also love CS Lewis and Philip Yancey on the Christian side. Recently I've enjoyed Tim Keller and Rob Bell.

I'm a good listener and a loyal friend. I'm a pretty good conversationalist. I like to laugh, discuss ideas, or whatever comes to mind, especially enjoy conversation that comes from the heart. Education is also important to me. I have two masters degrees, though I'm pretty sure I'm done with school! But that certainly doesn't mean you have to have been to grad school for me to be interested, although it wouldn't hurt ;) If you love to learn, love a challenge, and enjoy authentic conversation, I'd bet you're my type. Add a passion for your faith and if you fit that description I would love to hear from you.

I'm looking for an equal partner. I'm not the kind of person who is passive in a relationship, and I'm not domineering either. I want someone I can support and believe in who does the same for me.

P.S. For those of you who are into Myers-Briggs, I'm an ENFJ (but the J part is not very strong). I really love people who are also N.

What I'd like to do on a first date...

Mostly I want good conversation.

My past relationships have taught me...

Keep talking to God about my relationships. Spend real time to listen to Him. Make sure I am in His will and with a man who is drawing near to the heart of God before I allow myself to fall for someone. This has saved me from a lot of pain in the past.

To me, being an Adventist means...

I'm invested in the Adventist thing. For me it's about what the message says about who Jesus is. I love the Sabbath, holistic spirituality (including health), and our theology is so cool. Adventism is a beautiful expression of who God is. I'm not naive to our flaws. But when I was in college I made the decision that I was not going to substitute anyone else's ideas of what Adventism is for my own best understanding.

In five years, I see myself

I'm working on starting two new churches in the next 2 1/2 year, after that we'll see. I'd also like to meet someone.

My favorite Bible passage is...

Ps 116. This passage is so close to my heart. This is how God has worked with me.
