Personal Narrative

My goal in ministry is to do all things on account of the gospel (1 Cor 9:23). Therefore, my teaching in the classroom and the local church is propelled by the grand truth that Jesus has been crucified and risen. It is my ambition to show how all the bible, all of ministry, and all of life is summed up in the crucified and risen Christ. I hope to pass on to my students a passion for God’s word which is thoroughly gospel-centered and contains the wisdom which leads to salvation.
