My favorite part about teaching at Johnson is: The opportunity to help students see the relevance of the Bible for their everyday lives.

When I’m not teaching, I love to: Read books about history.

In my classes, students can expect: In-depth discussions of the meaning of New Testament texts and their application to our lives.

My best advice to a new student in my program is: Make learning your priority during this short season of your life.

Because of my influence, I most want my students to become: Fully committed, mature followers of Christ.

The myth-busting truth about my discipline I most want people to understand is: These ancient texts still speak to us and guide our lives today.

A quote that influences how I live is: “Loving other human beings means trying to create conditions by which they reach their potential as human beings.” – Morton Kelsey
