Our Executive Director

Over-the-years, Chilly has answered to many titles including: youth specialist, mentor, church planter, pastor, thrill seeker, captain, disciple maker, speaker, dad, barista, coach, evangelist, and author. But, Chilly is fine!

In his own words: “I LOVE Jesus, my wife Netta, our 5 amazing kids, great coffee, EDM, Nike shoes, anything Apple, sushi, Vermont, my dog, beach vacations, sports, books and YOU!” 

Whether in a ministry setting, on-one-on conversation, or among students, Chilly leaps at any opportunity to see lives changed! Friendship-based discipleship is at the core of everything I do.

“I'm addicted to transformation!” cc

Chilly has had the honor to spend the last three decades loving, reaching, restoring, and coaching young people. He speaks at conventions, conferences, camps, schools, churches and other events around the world. Chilly also loves opening his life and journal with a few passionate students or friends over a great cup of coffee.

"I love ANY opportunity to impact today’s generation of world changers." cc

After spending the last 14 years in the heart of Detroit loving people, building community and empowering leaders; Chilly comes to Burlington, Vermont (America's most unchurched city) to launch Revolution Youth! 

Chilly's mission is simple: “to inspire today’s generation to grasp their destiny and live their lives with reckless abandonment to the purpose of God.“
