Education and Research
Learning the Bible awoke within me a latent desire to speak the Bible. Following seminary, this led me to Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary to pursue a D.Min. in Homiletics under the purview of Dr. Haddon Robinson. There I had the opportunity to serve as Dr. Robinson's Sabbatical In-Preaching Mentor which solidified my desire to speak the Bible and provoked further study. I began as a student in the doctor of philosophy at London School of Theology/Middlesex University in 2012. The research is situated in the field of Homiletics.
People who inspire you
I am inspired by Wendell Berry. His essays, novels, poetry and life commitment to community are an intelligent and elegant contribution to the work being done for Jesus' sake.
Favorite book in the Bible
The radical wisdom books in Scripture: Job, Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs.
Extra-curricular, non-ministry activities
I enjoy reading and traveling.
