Thanks for visiting! After 11+ years in full-time pastoral ministry, I felt God’s call to take a leap of faith to focus more on teaching, writing, and research. After much prayer, my family and I left the pastorate in order to do this. Today, my ministry is focused on my students at Eternity Bible College. 

I believe firmly in the truth of the Christian faith. Because of this, I also believe that the message of Christ has something real—something challenging and comforting—to say to our culture. Because Christ communicates his message through his followers, my calling is to help train them to share that message intelligently and persuasively. My aim is to help believers think critically about the Bible’s role in their life and ministry. To do this, I train students to think responsibly about the Bible’s historical context and its fresh application in today’s world.
