Alan is a visionary leader with a deep heart for God. His years of experience in college ministry has given him unique insights on how to reach, minister, and build up a new generation of Jesus followers. With a foundation in the Bible, his theoretical approach to the practice of ministry is guided by culturally-centric theories in faith formation, student development, and social (generational) psychology.

President of Sacramento State University

When I read Ministry to iGen I felt very seen and understood, in a way that I haven’t experienced in a lot of Christian circles. Loved the insight Alan brought to reaching iGen.

Joshua Phillips

Sophomore at UC San Diego

I admire and respect Alan's leadership. His intentional research with and reflection of iGen students shines light on the beauty of this emerging generation and brings clarity to the specific needs of iGen. Alan's eBook on iGen is a needed voice as leaders in both secular and church worlds struggle to find hope in the emerging generation of future leaders.
