My favorite part about teaching at Johnson is: Interacting with students outside the classroom and watching them grow in their faith.
When I’m not teaching, I love to: Play with my dog (“Meatloaf”), read, and exercise.
In my classes, students can expect: A classroom environment that is fun, rigorous, and an honest exploration of faith and the mission of God.
My best advice to a new student in my program is: Breathe, have fun, and be curious.
Because of my influence, I most want my students to become: I want my students to cultivate empathy as a path toward loving their neighbors well.
The myth-busting truth about my discipline I most want people to understand is: Critical (read: analytical) scholarship is not an obstacle to faith, but can be a means toward deepening one’s faith.
A quote that influences how I live is: “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” – Wayne Gretzky – Michael Scott
