Perfected In Love

A place for spiritual outcasts, nomads, and misfits



People are done with church

For more and more Americans, it is a place filled with pain, anger, or judgment.

For others, it’s simply a pale version of what it could be; what it is supposed to be; what they long for it to be.

Giving Up Sunday is an honest look at some of the worst mistakes made by American churches, and offers an alternative that is raw, authentic, and full of hope.


  • If you are done with church or know someone who is
  • If you long for more and don’t know where to start
  • If you are looking for a truly genuine faith, a community rooted in love, and a calling in your life that transcends the nine to five plus ten on Sunday,

this is your new beginning.

Did Jesus really come to save us?



“Kurtis is personable, approachable, and not afraid to be vulnerable, giving his audience permission to do the same. He is a truly gifted and skilled speaker.”

“Kurtis’ ability to relate with an audience and meet them where they are is very rare indeed. He will make you laugh and think deeply in the same moment.”

Meet Kurtis

My name is Kurtis.

I am writer, speaker, life coach, and spiritual director, but I am also just a regular guy (though I have very weird tendencies…so maybe not all THAT regular).

I have grown up in church and Christian organizations my entire life and have led in them since I was 11 years old! They introduced me to God in wonderful ways, but as I got older I noticed a gap in my life. Church sounded good, but something just wasn’t adding up.

At the end of the day I realized I had a lot of beliefs, but not a whole lot of tangible love, peace, and purpose in my life.

So, after 10 years, I quit vocational ministry and started writing. I now help spiritual misfits like me uncover the true love and grace of God, and guide them as they serve and lead the world around them.

If you’re looking for real love, indescribable peace, and powerful purpose;

If you’re looking for a spirituality that is rooted in relationship first, I’m here to help!
