Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Justin Irving now lives in Minneapolis, MN with his wife and five children.

Irving is on a journey of learning what it means to live, love, and lead with purpose and brings a diverse multidisciplinary background to his reflections on these themes (Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership, M.Div., MBA in process). Irving has served at Bethel Seminary for over 15 years in a variety of faculty and administrative roles, and currently serves as Professor of Ministry Leadership, Director of the Doctor of Ministry program, and Director for Bethel’s Work with Purpose initiative.

Reflections on the practice of leading, working, and serving on purpose are here on Patheos as well as the following blog site: www.purposeinleadership.com
