Why I am at AMBS
I am happy about being part of a community that seeks to understand and participate in what God is doing in the world through Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Doing so requires the full array of intellectual, spiritual, and relational gifts that God has given us. The seminary is a good place to pursue faithful living, faithful ministry, and faithful inquiry.
What can students expect in your classroom?
I emphasize open conversation about critical issues related to the Bible. I also tend to use PowerPoint as a way of organizing my comments in class.
