Practical Theology, Church Planting
I teach at Regent University because I love to see students demonstrate openness to new ideas. The classroom to me is a catalyst for broader based thinking, generating more careful consideration of the factors subversively shaping students' own walk with God. I am amazed by their desire to stretch and grow spiritually at this level of education, and the serious approach they take to becoming genuinely "lit" from within!
I am the founding pastor of Poema Community Church in Virginia Beach. My wife Gretchen and I have been married for 10 years and currently reside in Virginia Beach. My ministry passion is to help cultivate a community that creatively expresses its need and passion for Jesus Christ.
