My favorite part about teaching at Johnson is: I get paid to engage students at the intersection of Christian faith, academic excellence, and vocational equipping. No kidding (almost!): I would do this for free!

When I’m not teaching, I love to: Hang out with my family (my wife, our three adult kids and their spouses) at our home and explore the French Broad River in my kayak.

In my classes, students can expect: To hear about my latest adventures on the French Broad River (did you know that some geologists consider it to be the third-oldest river on the planet?) AND to hear me say “dude” and “unpack” way too often.

My best advice to a new student in my program is: Create a schedule that provides you with margin for Christ’s empowering breath and memory-making distractions among friends and family.

Because of my influence, I most want my students to become: At peace with who they are and intentionally engaged with God’s beautiful and broken world.

The myth-busting truth about my discipline I most want people to understand is: That we are still trying to figure out what our discipline is!

A quote that influences how I live is: Celebrate the Temporary (a mantra of my best friend, mentor, and my father, the late Alec H. Woodhull).
