A bit about me


I think it is fair to say that my life has been marked by being on the move. While born in California, most of my formative years were spent in Arkansas. After completing my undergraduate studies, Alison (my wife) and I moved to Chicago, Illinois, so that I could pursue graduate work and prepare for ministry. Upon completing the degree, I accepted a call to Chinese Baptist Church in Seattle, Washington. I was ordained there and after a rewarding season of ministry, we returned to our home church in Arkansas where I served in numerous capacities. In the midst of a life filled with ministry and family, I completed a ThM in New Testament from Regent College and discerned a call to theological education. So we – now numbering six – pulled up roots and moved to Scotland for my doctoral studies. When that was over, I spent two years doing post-doctoral work at the University of Tübingen, which was followed by other teaching opportunities in Arkansas and Illinois. Even though there has been lots of change, throughout the years of moving for study and work, there has been a consistent commitment to the local church and theological education expressed in various ways. I see my work here at Trinity College as a way of bringing these experiences and passions together.

Most of our free time is spent exploring trails, forests, and mountains, both near and far.

My research interests


As the above might suggest, I have a wide range of research and supervision interests. My doctoral work was concerned with reformed perspectives on the doctrine of scripture, which in turn led to thinking about modern Protestant thought more generally. Figures and themes which have occupied my interest lately include: Ludwig Feuerbach, liberation theologies, theological anthropology, Karl Barth, theology’s intersection with other disciplines, and the church’s complicated history with racial and ethnic injustice. I would welcome supervision inquiries on any of the above – and more.
