My favorite part about teaching at Johnson is: I love teaching at Johnson University because preparing students for kingdom work is an amazing privilege – our students are world changers.

When I’m not teaching, I love to: Explore cities, visit alumni in other countries, listen to music

In my classes, students can expect: Biblical foundations and practical experiential learning (field trips)!

My best advice to a new student in my program is: Pray and seek God’s guidance for your life’s work. If you love other cultures and want to see all of God’s people come into fellowship with him – this is the program for you.

Because of my influence, I most want my students to become: Culturally competent, people who love all people and fight for justice.

The myth-busting truth about my discipline I most want people to understand is: Missionaries in the 21st century are sensitive to indigenous cultures and are there to meet people where they are and point them to Jesus.

A quote that influences how I live is: “Christ has no body now but yours, No hands, no feet, on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which He looks with compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which He walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which He blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes; you are Christ’s body. Christ has no body now but yours.” – Teresa of Avila
