PERSONAL MISSION STATEMENT:

I desire to help students discover their vocation and calling as servant leaders. My teaching focuses upon scholarship, discipleship, and praxis in order to equip students to be faith-thinkers. I draw upon over ten years of academic experience and over ten years of pastoral ministry in order to help students integrate their faith and learning. My classes are student-centered, geared toward empowering students to change their world for Christ. In the classroom, I challenge students to Christian praxis, to not just have a better theology (which is important), but to be empowered by God to do something (which is crucial).
