My writing journey almost got derailed before it ever began. My most dreaded subjects in school were reading, spelling, writing, and grammar.
In college and seminary, I learned to tolerate writing, because I loved the research. My master's and doctorate programs required many papers and thesis that had to go through review committees.
Teaching is my true passion. Today, the writing skills I've developed have given me the way to take my research and present it to others with clarity and impact. My deepest desire is to communicate God's truth to my generation and the ones that will follow.
It has always been my mission to guide and teach people. My love of research, program development, teaching and speaking have given me international stages at some of the top global companies, churches and events.
Over the years I have combined ministry with business and entrepreneurial skills. I have held multiple corporate certifications in the IT and project management fields. And I hold degrees from Washington Bible College (BA), Grace College and Seminary (Mdiv), and earned a Doctorate of Intercultural Studies (D. Ics.) at Grace Theological Seminary in Winona Lake, IN.
My early years in ministry focused on high adventure trips with young men. We traveled on the Night Hawk to escape the culture and explore wilderness hiking, caves, rock climbing and scuba diving.
Later in life after years of mission trips and teaching stewardship in impoverished countries, my wife Elaine and I left corporate America. We lived and traveled "off the grid" extensively on a sailboat, Ancient Path, and sailed from Chicago to South America.
We co-founded Pilotage International, a 501(c)3, and established the Pilotage Intercultural Center on the east coast of the Dominican Republic. One of the best experiences of our lives was serving local and international tourism workers and pastors from Haiti, throughout Europe, and Latin America.
I am an author of numerous papers and articles on culture, theology, leadership, and communications. I have authored Gilligan Meets Google (2017), Discipleship in the Twenty-First Century (2015) and my upcoming book is to be released in 2024.
Today, I continue to develop programs and advise leaders, pastors, and authors. My students and friends know me as Dr. C. You can find me teaching Bible study classes in the U.S., preaching at various churches, and being interviewed at national and international events.
