Hi Everyone!
Title:    Adjunct Professor of Practical Theology and leadership
Department:    Seminary
My passion is to see God’s kingdom become a greater reality on earth through the planting of churches that embody the good news in a way that is faithful to God, genuine to our context, and that proclaims the good news by our life and lips. I’ve given my life to planting churches as well as helping people plant churches that value tight-knit community, life-forming discipleship, locally-rooted presence and boundary crossing mission.
