Joined the launch team of Mile City Church and plan and execute a church lunch. After 3 months I trained people to replace me and stepped out of the project.

Essentially, an hour long rant in the form of a podcast with Nick Stumphauzer where we talk about some topic like the inherent value (or lack thereof) of a human life.
Turns out that Michigan has the second highest rate of Human trafficking outside of Nevada. That made me mad so I teamed up with Amy Savin to host an annual event to raise money to raise awareness of human trafficking in Michigan. This is part of the A21 movement. Yes, I built a community page about this too.
