In my current capacity as worship director, I help plan and lead chapel services twice a week, and have the privilege of coaching student worship leaders.
In my current capacity as father of two boys and one girl, I change a lot of diapers, read a lot of books, and have a lot of fun. My wife does all that and more.
My B.A. is in Philosophy; I’m currently working on an M.Div. with an urban ministry focus. As you’ll see at Words on the Word, I am particularly enjoying studying the Bible as transmitted in Hebrew and Greek. I read a good amount, too, and write about it here.
I have spent more than a decade in youth ministry, working at small, mid-sized, and large churches in Illinois, Virginia, and Massachusetts. I have also led in other church ministry capacities, including leading worship music, preaching, and consulting.
