What year did you begin teaching at TFC

2016

What is your favorite aspect of teaching at TFC

Not only teaching students, but our classes are small enough where we get to know students personally even
to the point of mentoring. It has always been my call to equip the next generation of Youth Ministry Leaders and TFC tends to produce the best leaders in the field at the Undergraduate level.

What courses do you teach at TFC

All youth ministry related courses and then some.

When I’m away from the classroom, I enjoy

I love researching and writing on new youth and society issues. I enjoy spending time with my family and I love public speaking. I have written a published novel and hope to write more in the future.

People might be interested to know

I hold two different black belts. However, I want to design a t-shirt that says, “The older I get, the better I was!”

Favorite verses/quotations

  • Proverbs 4:23 ” Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”
  • It is said that being a Christian is about how you live your life. This is not true. Being a Christian is about how you surrender your life.
