First Word: Thank You for a Great First Decade

Founder of RELEVANT, dad of Cohen, follower of Jesus, podcaster, design nerd, fan of the Magic and Gators. But not in that order.
I was 19 and attending a Christian conference where there were a ton of college students. The energy was exciting; it felt like something new was happening.
A spiritual movement was taking shape, but I felt like it had to be more than just a one-off experience. We needed a way to connect with what was happening in our everyday lives. We needed media that could give voice to the unique, new thing God was doing in our generation.
At that time, nothing like that existed. That night, in my hotel room, I first wrote down the vision for launching this magazine.
