Sam Altis loves irreverent humor, good beer, thoughtful disagreement and cake. He has pastored at Trinity Church in Indianapolis and CrossWalk Community Church in Napa, California. He now resides in Tacoma, Washington where splits his time between writing, connecting churches with incoming refugees, and pretending to like rain and grunge music. If you want more of his street cred, he has a M.Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary and has written for Relevant.
