Rooftop is my blog. I am a writer and communications consultant, with deep experience grappling with Christianity and its intersection with public life and issues. I’ve been involved in senior management, strategic communications and advocacy in the evangelical community for 36 years, including stints at the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, The DeMoss Group, Rooftop MediaWorks, World Vision, Prison Fellowship, and The Trinity Forum. I have also provided public relations direction for dozens of client organizations. I was the chief-of-staff for Charles Colson for more than a decade, and the director of communications for Promise Keepers’ Stand in the Gap in 1997 and Billy Graham’s Amsterdam 2000. In recent years I have been consulting on communications and business development across many sectors.
I am a communications graduate of Biola University (B.A.), and California State University, Fullerton (M.A.). I live with my bright and beautiful wife, Debbie, in suburban Chicago (Batavia). I’m the father of four girls and a boy, ranging in age from 26 to 8. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
