How I came to Multnomah

Mike is a native Oregonian who attended Multnomah as a student after completing a six-year enlistment in the Navy’s nuclear power program and serving for four years on board the USS Truxtun. In addition to meeting his wife, Anne Marie, at Multnomah, Mike also developed a passion for integrating intellectual pursuits with Christian spirituality and discipleship. Mike’s academic interests include theological epistemology (his doctoral dissertation examined the influence of Scottish Common Sense Philosophy on Charles Hodge and the “Old Princetonians” and its relation to postmodern epistemology), the history of theology, the relation between religion and science, apologetics, and theological ethics.

Family

In addition to his studies and teaching in philosophy, theology, and ethics, Mike enjoys time with his wife and two sons Jacob and Benjamin.

Church Involvement

Mike and his family worship at St. Matthews Anglican Church in Portland, Oregon. One of Mike’s favorite Scriptures is Romans 12:1-2.
