    I’m a Christ-follower, husband, and father in Columbus, Ohio. My wife and I homeschool our three daughters. We place a massive emphasis on giving them a well-rounded Christian education. Not only do we teach the standard subjects, but we teach them Christian apologetics and orthodox Christian theology. Prioritizing these subjects alongside their traditional coursework gives them the confidence and knowledge they need to speak about their Christian worldview in a hostile culture (1 Peter 3:15).

    I have a BA in Business Administration and an MBA from Mount Vernon Nazarene University (https://www.mvnu.edu). I have a MA in Christian Studies with an Emphasis in Pastoral Ministry from Grand Canyon University (https://www.gcu.edu). I attended CrossExamined Instructor Academy (https://crossexamined.org/what-is-cia/) in 2013 which is designed to train students to effectively communicate and present the messages of the book, “I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be an Atheist”.

    I’ve written heavily on matters related to Christian apologetics, theology, philosophy, and the culture on my blog, Worldview of Jesus (https://worldviewofjesus.com). The act of writing was my way of comprehending complex information and breaking it down into easily digestible pieces. I have over five years of experience in leading youth groups and teaching high school age students first-hand. When I began high school youth ministry as a youth leader in 2012, I taught with a heavy emphasis on apologetics, theology, and philosophy. These are challenging topics however high school age students are eager to sponge this information up if they seek the truth and ask questions.

    My philosophy for teaching is simple: I will gear all my classes toward the truth. The truth is the reflection of God’s nature. God’s nature can be found in the Bible and in nature, which are both authored by God’s hand and observed by our human senses. God and knowing God better is my passion. I hope I can share this passion with you!

    I look forward to seeing you in class!

    As a child, I was raised to believe in orthodox Christianity. However, like many young Christians, I lost sight and got swept away in the secular thinking in my late teens and early twenties. A string of events in my early twenties brought clarity to the error of my thinking and I rededicated my life to Jesus around the age of 22. God permitted me to suffer through my poor decisions so I could realize how much I needed Him. Faith grows stronger when tested if you allow it.

    Spending time with those I love. I love reading about Christian apologetics, theology, philosophy, economics, history, and politics. I have a habit of purchasing too many books. Golfing with my father-in-law without keeping score. Relaxing at the beach listening to the sound of the waves.
