David Platt Interview

This morning at the D6 Conference, I was able to spend some time backstage with David Platt.  He is the Pastor at The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, AL, and the author of the great book, Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream.  David absolutely blew it up this morning at D6.  I love it when a person is so passionatte about their purpose, that it makes others uncomfortable.

In this quick 7 minute interview we talked about our children, raising them to seek Christ, and helping our kids learn to not be “of the world.”


Jonathan Cliff is married to his wife Starr and they together live out their days with two sons and a daughter. Jonathan serves as one of the Pastors at Grace Community Church in Clarksville, Tennessee; where he works with leaders throughout the city to help develop Christian community that leads to deep and meaningful spiritual friendships. His journey has been an adventurous one, having served in the local church for 15 years in family ministry developing leaders, building environments for kids and students to belong, and encouraging parents to take big spiritual steps with their families.
