What do you like about teaching at Austin Seminary?
Austin Seminary is a “heuristic” place (from Gk. heuriskō), as students are exploring and deepening their calling, gifts, trust in God, and love for others. Engaging with the diverse student body and faculty/staff, I also continue to grow every day. I feel honored to contribute to this nurturing community through my teaching and service.
