Experience

My prior ministry experience includes serving as a campus minister, area director, and large church associate pastor.

I studied religion and philosophy at Samford University (B.A., thesis on teleological ethics), received the Master of Divinity from Beeson Divinity School, and completed additional studies (toward a Th.M.) in church history at Westminster Theological Seminary. I’ve also taken additional research at Tyndale House, Cambridge.

My research interests include: 19th Century American religious history; C. S. Lewis and the Inklings; Reformed theology; and, ecclesiology.

My other likes include: the Oxford comma, reformed theology, bow ties, corduroy, scotch, and the smell (not particularly the taste) of pipe tobacco.
