I was born and raised in Memphis, TN. The bluff city is my hometown. I encountered Christ through a story of change in January 1997.
I serve on the faculty of several higher education institutions, teaching theology and religious studies courses. I’ve also had two stints of teaching and ministry work in Europe: as a professor in the UK from 2003-2006 and as a pastor in Belgium from 2008-2013.
I hold a B.A. in Communications from the University of Memphis, an M.A. in Theological Studies from Covenant Theological Seminary, and two years of work toward a Doctor of Intercultural Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary. I have recently transferred into the University of Aberdeen to complete my PhD there. In particular, my research looks at how the missional practice of inculturation contributes to spiritual formation in the life of the Christian.
My book, Change for the First Time, Again, was released in September 2016 under Wipf & Stock’s imprint, Resource Publications. My newest work, Reflections of Immanuel, recently released, also with Wipf & Stock.
