Postion ≠ Loyalty

“Many a leader has wrongly assumed…that his position alone would ensure the loyalty of the people. He wasn’t mature enough to understand that every follower is a volunteer. Abuse your position as leader and you will lose those you lead. Nobody has to follow. You can’t force people, even subjects, to follow. You might be able to force them into submission, but you can’t force them to become loyal followers.” (Andy Stanley)

I was born and raised in Denver, CO and lived there through high school. Then I moved to Champaign, IL where I attended the University of Illinois and played on the Fighting Illini baseball team. I was married in December, 2001 to Molly, who I met at the U of I. In June of 2002, we moved to Phoenix and have been here ever since. In July of 2006, we welcomed a baby girl, Abby, into our family.
