With Gwen, I enjoy living life under the big sky of Upland, Indiana, in the company of dear friends and a precious family. Teaching Taylor undergraduate students has been the true highlight of my professional career. I regularly have the privilege of seeing students find their faith strengthened as they open themselves up to receive from the Spirit of God a deeper understanding of the goodness and beauty of God made known in Jesus Christ.
