Work History

Breathe: Babylon is a production of Nazarene Publishing House. For this study, I had the opportunity to work with my friend and fellow pastor, Shawna Songer Gaines, creating study guides and curriculum for her video series. 

As a contributor to Uncontrolling Love, a book edited by Thomas Jay Oord, I reflected on the traditional conception of "omnipotence" and "omniscience," contending that God is not "in control" as we so often assume but rather it is God's love that guides God's co-creation of the world on a continually-unfolding basis. 

The Q organization encourages people to stay curious, think well, and advance good. I had the privilege of developing study and discussion guides to be offered with some of their speaker presentations, covering topics like calling, theology of work. racial reconciliation, sexuality, and more. 

I called TGC home for all of my New York years. I was humbled to be brought into leadership there and have the opportunity to teach and preach on topics that met the needs of the community. I developed and taught courses on free will, the theology of work, the Nicene Creed, and the Apostles' Creed, among others.

One of the coolest gigs ever, I worked on a program at the Cathedral called Nightwatch: youth groups would stay the night at the Cathedral and participate in a full evening (and morning!) of programming. I taught on the spiritual habits and writings of Christian mystics: from St. Teresa of Avila to St. John of the Cross and many, many others. 

This Catechesis guide was a 40-day Lenten journey of deepening spiritual and theological knowledge, specifically designed for those contemplating baptism. I contributed guides on the Nicene Creed, Corporate Confession, and Baptism.
