Favorite Verses

"But the Lord said to Samuel, 'Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart."

-- 1 Samuel 16:7

"Now there are also many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written."

-- John 21:25

Ministry Passions

My focus is on training students in apologetics, reaching out to international students, and preaching.


I enjoy watching college football (I cheer for several teams, but first and foremost the Alabama Crimson Tide!), watching soccer, learning foreign languages, British and European history, record collecting, and skiing.

Favorite Non-American Food

Anything Indian or Mexican.

Why Am I on Staff with Christian Challenge?

I have had a passion for college ministry dating back to my graduate school days in Virginia. I love the unique combination of spiritual and intellectual development that takes place on a college campus. I pray I can assist in point students toward a mature, adult faith that will enable them to be consistent witnesses for Christ in their chosen career fields.

What is something unique about you?

I have a creative side that I like to exercise through poetry, songwriting, and blogging. And I figure Boulder is the kind of place that will inspire further creativity!
