My favorite part about teaching at Johnson is: I find satisfaction in knowing that I am helping students build a biblical framework to support their passion for God and their missional engagement in the world.

When I’m not teaching, I love to: Work with my hands, building and fixing things.

In my classes, students can expect: To be challenged in a positive and caring way.

My best advice to a new student in my program is: I have given this advice to my daughters when they left for college: “Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is” (Ephesians 5:15-17).

Because of my influence, I most want my students to become: Passionate and humble in service.

The myth-busting truth about my discipline I most want people to understand is: Contrary to popular belief, critical thinking is a biblical imperative for the Christian mind.

A quote that influences how I live is: “God provides the wind, Man must raise the sail.” – St. Augustine
