God has given me a passion to help students discover God’s role for them in His kingdom. When someone discovers their role on God’s team, they can then execute His plan to maximum effectiveness. I love to train students in discovering this and also mentoring them through practical ministry opportunities and challenges. I also love to teach and remind students that theory and practice are friends, not enemies! The theories that we learn about in the classroom and the practical experience we obtain can be effective compliments to one another as we attempt to be faithful to God’s Word and to the cultural context in which we minister.
