My favorite part about teaching at Johnson is: The opportunity to connect faith and content with students and peers.

When I’m not teaching, I love to: Continue working on songs and music for my gospel music recordings. Outside of this I enjoy experiencing the outdoors by camping, hiking, and fishing.

In my classes, students can expect: An applied approach to learning in a very exciting, interactive, and participatory environment.

My best advice to a new student in my program is: To use every course in the business program as an opportunity to explore how God can use you in the business marketplace.

Because of my influence, I most want my students to become: Examples and tokens for good in the world of business.

The myth-busting truth about my discipline I most want people to understand is: As a business professional, you do have the opportunity to change the world for Christ in a business mission field.

A quote that influences how I live is: “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, ‘Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons….’” (Acts 10:34).
