I'm passionate about working with God’s people seeking God’s Mission. I love to walk alongside preachers, church leaders, and those seeking to discern God’s call in their life and ministry. My areas of study include biblical languages, New Testament, history of the early church, and history of the church in North America. I try up with trends in church health, spiritual formation, and leadership so that I may resource and invest in others.
