Personal Statement

Jesus is my Saviour and King. I prize the Word of God and pursue Christian values in all of life and a global context. I find joy in carefully and creatively inspiring, equipping, teaching, and discipling others with respect and humility. I revel in continually and prayerfully growing in my theological thinking by pursuing academic research. I delight in the fellowship of God’s people and serving in many and various ways with people of all ages, backgrounds, and circumstances. I seek to grow in my love, knowledge, and service of God to proclaim Christ in gospel partnership with his people. Soli Deo Gloria.

Areas of Interest

I work in the overlap of systematic and historical theology. My research focuses on the doctrines of Creation, Providence, and God, especially in the thought of John Calvin. I pursue the practice of theology as an exercise in exegetical, dogmatic, and moral reason.

My teaching includes: biblical foundations, history of Christian confessions, contemporary theology, theology of the Reformation, Pentateuch, current issues in mission and evangelism, and serving in the CORE program.
