Featured Work



It is a “dream come true” for me to be a professor at Taylor. I graduated from Taylor and the department I now teach in back in 1982. It was during my time as a student at Taylor that I feel like the ground work for my own spiritual walk and ministry life was developed. After having been in ministry for 16 years I have now been teaching at Taylor full-time since 1999. Over all of those years I have watched our majors graduate and go into ministry positions well-equipped to serve in God’s kingdom with thoughtful minds, loving hearts, and capable hands. Our ministry students are so bright and capable that it is my hope and desire to continue to invest in their lives to prepare them serve God and others in the same way my Taylor professors invested in me during my college years.
