About Me

As pastor at Mars Hill Baptist Church of Chicago, I am passionate about helping people connect life’s dots so they can live abundantly.  I thrive on assisting people, leaders, pastors, and those in ministry think through life, leadership, goals, and strategy.  My speciality is organizational and personal leadership, so in addition to my role as a pastor, as I have time, I consult with business, church, and ministry leaders.

I have more than 20 years of leadership experience, mostly as an executive director of a Christian school, and have been in full-time ministry for 20 years.  I have a seminary master’s and a Master of Public Administration in Urban Planning. The greatest times for me are with my wife Shauntai and my two sons, Myles and Joshua, and my baby girl Lauren. I write on personal development, leadership, finance, relationships, inspiration, and motivation.

On occasion, I write about stuff that doesn’t fit neatly into one of these categories.  My goal is to create insightful, relevant content that you can put to work in your personal and professional life. If you are in a position of leadership—or aspire to be—then this blog is for you. I typically post two to three times a week. To make sure you don’t miss my newest posts, you can subscribe via RSS feed You can email me at cestowers@clarencestowers.com.
