Bent Tree has been a dream of mine for the past 13 years and with the help of many people we have been able to provide a place, events, and opportunities for pastors, elders and their wives to minister to one another by reminding each other of their callings as spouses, parents, children, siblings, friends, and churchmen.  Our goal is simple, healthy pastors for healthy churches to reach the lost for Christ and equip believers to serve.  We would love for you to join us online, or at one of our events, trust me it is the community of folks you’ve been looking for. We want to help you remember why you answered the call in the first place.  If you want to reach me email or use the Contact form.

I think I had to be one of the first guys to benefit from the ministry of Bent Tree before it was even known as Bent Tree.  Buz had a passion for reaching out to other church planters and I cannot count the times he was there for me in a pinch.  The Esprit De Corps we both enjoyed in RUF was missing once we moved to the oftentimes lonely calling of solo pastoring, and over the years Bent Tree has organically formed into an ever growing union of God’s servants who are there for each other for prayer, counsel, brain-storming, or just plain gut-honest venting.  I count it a privilege to serve this ministry which strengthens the church by coming alongside it’s leaders.  You can reach me at
