Something that brought you to love Jesus Christ more deeply: Earning my Master of Divinity. Pursuing my MDiv was one of the most spiritually-formative seasons of my life. The combination of pastoral ministry by day, classes in the evening and Seminary community throughout not only enriched my life intellectually but also formed me into a better equipped and spiritually mature follower of Jesus Christ.
What do you most want the Phoenix Seminary experience to do for students? I want Phoenix Seminary to be a place of education and transformation. I want students and graduates to know more about God but also look more like Jesus.
Ministry outside of Phoenix Seminary: I am a part-time Associate Pastor of Teaching and Preaching at Sunrise church in Gilbert, Arizona.
