Married to the beautiful & multi-talented Emily Cartwright Plank, rock star and Adjunct Psychology Professor at Point University. We have 3 amazing sons: Jordan (10), Ethan (9) and Brennan (6), who keep our home at full-throttle level at all times. We love serving together in Worship Ministry at Spring Road Christian Church in Lanett, Alabama, where I am also developing Renew Adult Discipleship Ministries. While I do have concern for the lost, I am most passionate about the “over-churched.” There are few things that excite me more than seeing a believer step into the overwhelming reality that faith is not about following rules, and that Jesus is waiting to lead each individual in an exciting, unique journey.
I am a graduate of Point University (’92), Fuller Seminary (’98) and am currently in a DMin/Ministry Skills Program at Talbot School of Theology at Biola University. Love to read, workout, adventure race, garden, travel, and be with my family.
I love the Church, the Bride of Christ. She’s not perfect, but I don’t know of a better institution where people get the opportunity to practice giving and receiving grace. For all of her flaws, the world is certainly not practicing this.
I believe the family is our primary discipleship group. They are some of the most important members of our congregation. Biblical parenting is art of developing these wonderful young people into a gift to God’s world.
