What motivated you to teach at Carroll?

The outstanding faculty and the teaching model of reestablishing the pastor-scholar in individual churches.

Could you tell us some additional information about your teaching ministry?

I am a full-time professor at B. H. Carroll but I am also a discipleship minister at my local church.

What is an example of a great moment for you in teaching at Carroll?

One of the more moving times I have had at Carroll was my week-long teaching trip to Cuba. The students were very hungry for the Word and were awesomely engaged in reflecting on what it meant to be a Christian within the Cuban society. I felt as if each student (30+) interacted with me as a professor either vocally (by asking questions concerning the lectures) or built relationships with me after class. This was one of the most engaged classes I have ever taught in 25 + years of teaching. Not a single class went by without multiple questions for clarification, praxis, or suggestions for going deeper in the text. I learned as much or more than did my Cuban students. Their love for Christ was overwhelming.
