I have been in ministry for 18 years serving outside several major metropolitan areas across North America (Tampa, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Sacramento). As an ordained pastor in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church I have lead worship regularly for congregations as large as 1,200 people. My areas of pastoral expertise include missions, spiritual formation, adult education, and emerging generations. I am currently doing part-time pulpit supply for the Church of Scotland while completing a PhD at the University of Aberdeen under John Swinton in the area of Practical Theology. Starting this Fall I will be joining ECO as a Senior Pastor at Christ Presbyterian Church in the west valley of Phoenix, AZ.
In addition to my PhD research I have completed a Doctor of Ministry from Western Theological Seminary, Holland, MI in the area of Spiritual Formation; a Masters of Divinity from Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, PA; and a Bachelors in Pastoral Studies from Clearwater Christian College, Clearwater, FL. My areas of academic interest include practical theology, disability theology, Christian spirituality, missiology, the monastic tradition, and the early reformation period in its late medieval context. I have presented theological papers in North America at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, PA and at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, MI. I have also presented theological papers in the U.K. at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland; at Westminster College, Cambridge, England; at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland; and have a paper proposal accepted at Durham University, England.
