Tim Hiller

From his earliest days, Tim Hiller’s story consisted of three things: A boy, a ball, and a dream. The boy with a ball began chasing his dream by dodging imaginary defenders in his parents’ backyard and cutting out pictures from Sports Illustrated for Kids magazine. The pursuit of his dream continued through the ranks and record books of the Orrville High School and Western Michigan University football programs, where Tim re-wrote the standards in virtually every major passing category. And his dream culminated in the National Football League, where Tim spent time with four teams, primarily the Indianapolis Colts.

Today, Tim is the author of the book Strive, a nationally recognized speaker, and the co-founder of Next Level Performance, which builds leadership and character in student-athletes through the sports they play. Tim and his wife Michelle and son Daniel reside in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Joshua Eric Murray

Joshua Eric Murray

If he could get paid to do nothing but train jiu-jitsu, yo-yo, read, and talk about baseball all day he would do it gladly. Because it is all he wants to do. All day long. Every day. But sadly he needs to stay employed. So to meet that requirement he works doing graphics and design in the marketing department of an engineering firm. He graduated with a degree in communications and a minor in Biblical Studies, all of which he wastes by collecting more books than he'll ever read. He is a writer who doesn't write as often as he should. Maybe he will. He's probably best described as a cross between a believer and some sort of mystic weirdo ever since someone taught him to look for God in everything he sees. Which as it turns out is always a blessing, but sometimes a curse. And his life hasn't been the same since. He still hates riding trains.

Rich VanKoughnett

Rich VanKoughnett

Rich VanKoughnett was baptized as an infant in the Roman Catholic Church and made his confirmation in college. His roots were not strong and after college he would move on to study the wide range of varying theological ideologies. He attended Reformed Presbyterian churches, was married in a Wesleyan church, would become a certified minister with the Assemblies of God, and would then run through the various purpose-driven, seeker-sensitive, self-help mega-churches. Rich and his wife were pretty much done with church when he began to listen to a podcast called "Fighting for the Faith" by Chris Rosebrough. This led him to watching Worldview Everlasting by Jonathan Fisk. Before calling it quits on the church, he suggested to his wife that they check out an LCMS Lutheran church down the road. He was fascinated by their teaching. Confessional Lutheran theology finally answered all the questions and frustrations he had at all the previous churches he attended. He now enjoys learning and writing about Confessional Lutheran theology, and is completely addicted to technology. You can follow him on Twitter at @RichVank.

Live Christianly

Live Christianly

The Live Christianly Podcast is hosted by Daniel Ryan & Elijiah Thompson, two followers of Christ doing their best to live a consistent and well-informed Christian life.

Elijiah T is a Christian, new father, blogger, armchair philosopher/theologian, podcaster, and aspiring scientist. He graduated with a bachelors in biology in 2013, and regularly writes on apologetics, science and the practical applications of well thought-out philosophy. As humans created in the image of God, Elijiah believes that we ought to critically examine all aspects of our lives, even [especially] the areas that may make us uncomfortable. He may be constantly flirting with heterodoxy, but that is only to discover what is true about God and His creation. Follow him at @ElijiahT.

Dan is a husband, father, and freethinking follower of Jesus. An aspiring podcaster at @LiveChristianly, he enjoys conversing about theology, philosophy, and reasonable thought as it pertains to all areas of life. Though often skirting the lines of heterodoxy, he believes that defensible living is important and finds himself regularly questioning both tradition and cultural norms for the sake of better understanding God and the Christian’s responsibility relating to the world around us. As for less intense interests, he can be caught sleeping (though not so much now that he has a kid), reading a good book (or maybe even a bad one), enjoying his favorite music on vinyl (or Spotify), writing and recording his own music, catching up on his documentary-ridden Netflix queue, listening to a podcast from his seemingly-endless subscription list, or just enjoying time together with his family. Though he’d call himself an aspiring blogger, he generally does not faithfully produce new content (which he continually regrets). You can find him on Twitter at @danieljryan.

Dietrich Wichmann is an ordained minister of the Church of England in South Africa, currently serving two congregations in the province of Kwa-Zulu/Natal. He has a passion for expository preaching and biblical counseling. He received his theological education at an evangelical seminary in Basel (Switzerland) and the George Whitfield College in Cape Town (South Africa). Born in 1977, Pastor Wichmann grew up on a farm among the Zulu people in South Africa whom he dearly loves. His German name betrays his Lutheran heritage, to which he is deeply indebted. In addition to his vocation as a pastor, he is a musician at heart with a great love for sacred music of the early Baroque period. His favorite Christian author is Martin Luther. His favorite Christian artist is Johann Sebastian Bach. Dietrich loves going surfing with his brother-in-law, and also loves the fly-fishing experiences. He says, with a grin, he is equally hopeless at both.

Michael Johnson

Michael Johnson

Michael Johnson is on a spiritual journey and his faith walk is a constant work in progress. But, in a nutshell, he is a Christ-follower, husband, father, cancer survivor, songwriter wannabe, and a coffee enthusiast. He currently lives in the heartland–without a dog (insert sad face here), but with a wonderful wife and two amazing girls. Michael is the owner of an independent coffee shop. He has a deep desire to help people grow closer to Christ and by doing so grow closer himself. He loves to have honest dialog about faith, God, and religion in hopes that it will help sharpen all involved in the conversation (or even those not involved but sitting close by). In the end, he knows he is just a man, and it is God who sustains him. Follow him on Twitter at @mjohnson_kc.

Peter Goldsberry

Peter Goldsberry has been and continues to be a spiritual journey. Raised Roman Catholic in New Jersey, Peter was nicknamed “Padre” and was thought destined for the priesthood due to his enthusiasm and eagerness to be involved in all matters of faith. Blessed to be a better than average football player, he also earned high academic and national honors. Peter’s life changed when his father was diagnosed with cancer. He’s unable to forget the first night back at college after burying his father. He couldn’t sleep and suddenly was lead to the college book store to purchase the last paperback Bible on the shelf. Following his graduation from college, Peter married his high school sweetheart Amy and started working with a blue chip company in Campbell Soup. Things were going great for the family but Peter felt that his faith had taken a back seat. Amy and he searched for a church and found a great Presbyterian one in Toms River that fueled their faith. Later, Peter accepted a job to serve as an executive with the NBA for the Hornets in New Orleans. While with the Hornets, he had the opportunity to work with Owner George Shinn building a Faith and Family Night where 10,000 Psalm books were handed out. Currently, Peter has returned to his roots in New Jersey and works there. Peter, Amy, and their two children are happy to be back in familiar surroundings. Follow him on Twitter at @Pgold44.
